Stalling after warm startup

Hey all, after I start my car when she has been running for a bit and it has since been turned off it tends to stall. (ie if i drive some where, turn it off, go back 15mins later it will start and stall). IT has always idled around the 500ropm mark which i think is a bit slow. what could this be and how can i fix it? should I simply clean the ISC, maf and TB with carby cleaner or would there be more to it than that? should i reset base idle?


Thanks Brendan

Yeah reset the idle to 700-800rpm and it should be a lot better. Cleaning the IAC, TB and MAF is also a good idea, but its probably just the idle speed being too low.
