Well Im taking my Rio in Tomorrow to a mechanic, and see whats going on with this problem Im having.

If I dont run the car for 3 days and then start it up the idle sputters and when I step on the gas peddle it spudders more then goes normal after 3000 rpm but the I release the gas peddle and spudders again. Going to get the codes read, but hoping it helps. I dont want to pay for repairs that is not going to fix the problem.

Thanks guys, RonJohn I don't remember the code number but it was for O2 sensor slow reading. So we replaced O2 Sensor, new spark plugs, new spark plug wires, Cleaned out throttle body. For 442.00 CND (parts, labour, and tax) which I don't think was too bad. Rechecked the for error codes and there was none !!! :) Thanks for your help !!! I really appreciate it
