Hey,
Your Satty loves you. It is just telling you it needs a little TLC. Have you ever had the ECTS (coolant temperature sensor) replaced? The original design had a plastic tip that tends to crack and leak. They play hell with idle speeds, fuel economy, starting, and more.

Have you done any preventitve maintenece lately? What? Fuel filter, air filter, plugs, wires, PCV valve, clean the EGR valve, clean the throttle body, all of these will affect idle.

Good luck and let us know. : )
