Could be a few things. Are u getting a CEL?
Check ur plugs and wires and distributor
fuel filter and pump and injectors and fuel pressure
could be fast idle control valve (what is ur rpm at idle)
check ur vacuum lines
oil pressure
If none of this works do a compression test and if thats the problem and leakdown test to find out where ur losing compression.
Probably missing more stuff, but I hope this points u in the right direction.

I had this same problem and it ended up being my plugs/wires/rotor.

sounds like the same problem I've been trying to figure out for like a year. it's irritating. if you ever figure it out, lemme know. I'd love to have a solution to this one.

Mine just idles very low near 500rpms. I have a CEL the code is P301 Cyl 1 miss fire. I have not yet figured out what to replace, plugs, wires, cap and rotor all look good for its age.

sorry to bring this back from the dead, but have you figured anything out yet? my car idles at 500 when warm. at a stop, while turning the wheel, the rpm drops even lower (because of the power steering?) which makes the car stumble, but the rpm will pick up again. it's pretty annoying. my friend told me to check my intake (aem cold air) to see if it's dirty, but i don't know if that's the cause.

also, when i let off the gas, and the rpm drops to within ~2000-1000, it makes a little rattling noise. think there's any connection?
