Hi - Amr - sounds very like a temerature sensor problem or a dirty TDC sensor. Start with the easy stuff first - clean the TDC sensor - if that don't help check the air filter is clean. Then move onto the engine coolant temperature sensor and then the air intake temperature sensor. It appears the problem is temperature related. Also has your car an outside temp., sensor. Are you sure theidle speed is only 500RPM as this seems quite low and should be around the 800 to 900 mark. Have any mods been done to the car.
