Ok ill list everything i have noticed.
The car idles at 600rpm and it sounds sometimes like it is going to stall, because the car starts to vibrate.
When I open the hood, and listen to the engine, about every 3 seconds it sounds just like the engine is taking a gasp of air.
And also I have noticed a crack in my radiator where the green coolant leaks out.

Can you guys link any of this together and maybe figure out what might be going on? Thanks for responding.

Just turn up your idle so that it is around 750 (close to factory spec).

As for the radiator, get that replaced ASAP. Don't drive around with a leak in the radiator just thinking that it is a tiny leak. There have been many people in the past on this board that did the same thing and blew a head gasket in the long run because of that TINY leak.

ok Mark ill get that taken care of, thanks.

750RPM is factory spec? I though 600 was normal. Now im not worried about it as much.
