I bought the car about 4 months ago and recently if its been idling for bout 3-5 minutes(like at a light) the engine either cuts off or runs really rough. I'm also only getting about 180-200 miles to a tank. any ideas? Personal i think its the o2 sensor. if you guys agree, could you tell me where to find them. THanks

when it starts running really rough, take off the connector to the IAC, and see if the car stalls out or not (its on the throttle body) these seem to go bad often and you wouldn't think they would, but when they do, they allow air to go in the intake, bypassing the throttle plate, or the silenoid or whatever can burn out and just plain making the thing not work.
