Car cuts out at idle, does not stall, runs great, it just cuts out at idle and the check engine light is off. But when this started when the light did come on it didn't cut out at idle no more and when the light went out it started doing the same thing. But now the light isn't coming back on at all.I put new plugs in it a couple of months ago, it is coil on plugs so there isn't no plug wires.I was thinking maybe throttle body sensor, but not sure. If anyone out there has a theory I would appreciate it.

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure first. Then clean throttle plate on both sides with choke cleaner as well as iac hole.
