Cool 03 Spec V, Sloppy Idle

I have an 03 Spec V, I'm having an intermitant problem with my idle. It is alright on Start up, but once it has been driving a while and I engage the clutch allowing the motor to drop to idle, it will drop to a low idle early on, and often stall out. I checked it with a scan tool assuming it was a sensor but picked up no codes. I don't seem to be losing any power or fuel economy. Hopefully someone can help me out.

You should start by adjusting the idle speed. The information is in the "Engine Control"section of the service manual. You can download the section free from here: Knowledgebase - 2003 Sentra - Nissanhelp.com.

Most likely the idle is too low, it should be around 700 RPM.
