When engine is at idle it fluctuates between 600 and 800 rpm, going up and down. Use to be steady at 600.

Clean the throttle body and around the throttle blade. Clean the IAC (idle air control) passages out as well. Do not be surprised if yours is dirty like this.

Refer to the picture for the IAC passage.

No problem, reply back once you get it cleaned. It should do the trick (95% of the time) but it could be something else as well.
