Your DTC is P0506. That's opposite of mine which is higher idle P0507. Page EC-371 of the service manual list the possible cause; intake air leak (after the MAF), and the throttle actuator. Check your PCV valve also.

You may need to relearn the ECM for the idle. If you cleaned the throttle body or did anyrepairs to the head gaskets idle or throttle sensors this has to be done also check and seee if the throttle body is carboned up.

You should start by cleaning the throttle body and then do the Idle Air Volume Learning Procedure.
