I have an 01 Altima and am experiencing the inexplicable idle shudder. When coming to idle, the tach starts dancing between 500 and 600 rpm. If I kick it up to 1200, the running is seamingly smooth, and drops back down when released.

My brother is attending UTI in Houston, and I had him take the car to class and they ran tests on it but (with the help of instructors) were unable tio determine the problem.
I'm basicly at an end point to my patience with this one. Looks like I'm gonna be putting it in to the dealership unless someone has some other suggestions.
have the same problem?
