    Poor idle after a quick sprint.

    I have noticed after a quick sprint followed by idle time sitting at lights, the engine will idle so slow it will almost stall for about 20 seconds before returning to normal idle speed, any ideas before the next dealer visit.

    The speeds involved are normal 0 to 80 km/h to join up with traffic flow then stop at red lights.

    Car is factory stock with 57k after 4 1/2 years.

    Nothing I can come up with.
    Mine, and actually both (2015 MT and 2016 AT) do that from time to time.
    I never managed to duplicate it when needed. It is very random.
    Pushing the gas helps, sometimes.
    Drives:
    2016 KIA Forte5 SX 1.6 T-GDI, A/T ("cheap GTI" - surprises many drivers) - SOLD... Some OEM and aftermarket parts left after... see my FS thread in market section.
    2014 FIAT 500e (my first EV - awesome toy!!)
    2015 AUDI Q5 (for wife...)
    2016 FIAT 500X Trekking Plus AWD with Roof and Beats (for wife)

    That happened to me twice, I just turned the engine off and on and the issue got Fixed I guess this is probably a very random bug from the ecu.
