    engine sputtering at low rpm

    I am having similar issues regarding my engine sputtering at low rpm. My 2005 arc runs great but it is becoming more and more frequent that at start (also about the 3rd time while running errands) the engine sputters and doesnt seem to idle right. I come to a red light and while holding down the break the engine almost seems to choke out and the idle is about 800-850. Sounds like a fuel pump issue? Any in sight would be great before I takr it to the dealership. Thank you.

    When was the last time your fuel filter and spark plugs were changed? Or perhaps a vacuum issue? I think idle rpm at 800 rpm is right where it should be.
