I do not think it is the vats.... i just brought it to my mechanic, whose my neighbor and our trusty family mechanic and as we looked at it, we had it in park and the rpms would fall to 300-400 and the ses light would blink on and then it would rev back up to about 1000 rpms. it would smooth idle for about 10-20 seconds and repeat the drop in rpms and then rev back up.... ses light never stayed on. he hooked a volt meter up to it and it didnt seem to be the alt. wondering if i took it to a dealership if i could get some better answers or if they r just gonna wantto bend me over and take a bunch of money. my mechanic said he has heard of coolant dripping on a crank sensor causing a similar problem but my car has no signs of anything leaking besides an oil drip once in a geat while. Basically stumped as all hell.
