I’ve got two issues that I know of and I’m wondering if they could be related. For the past 4 months the temp indicator on DIM has not always shown a gradual rise to the middle. It has sat at the extreme left end and then popped up to the middle (or whatever temp the engine is currently at) about 10min into the drive. I figured it needed to replace the EcT but was hoping to delay a few weeks when I was planning to do PCV.

Ffw to this week where all of a sudden the car is occasionally dropping to 550rpm at idle and occasionally stalling.

There does not seem to be any correlation to low rpm only when temp is not displaying correctly FYI. Engine runs like a top under movement.

Could it be ECT, you think?

Check engine light on? Any diagnostic codes?

When you replace PCV (be sure to clean ports on block also), Clean/service the throttle as well.

No codes, throttle squeaky clean (replaces with Xemodex last year). PCV planned within next 6 weeks.
