Bumping my own thread in hopes people willing to help were idle over the weekend .

Just want to know from the experts what could be wrong with car almost stalling when hot at idle. Again, none of the myriad of idle valve issues showed this symptom first on 6MT cars. Remember reading something similar about an engine sensor, but spent hours reading searches in vain.

Problem is I use the car mostly for 800-mile trips in the middle of nowhere (little towns here and there), and want to know what I'm dealing with. I know the idle valve shouldn't leave me stranded after showing the 'christmas tree' on the dash for the first time, but an engine sensor might be a different story. Thanks.
