2003 BA Falcon idle miss

I have a 2003 Falcon with 168,000kms up. It is in exellent condition and runs smoothly and well under all conditions except at idle. As soon as the car comes to a stop, the engine seems to go in to a constant miss mode on one cylinder. Then, as soon as the throttle is touched to move off, it is as smooth as can be, and remains so under all conditions of accelerating, cruising.

If the engine is revved at a standstill in neutral it smoothes out and the miss disappears at about 2000 rpm.

I recently drove it 1100 kms in two days and it never missed a beat, - except every time at idle. Startig is normal and easy. There is no tendency to stall.

Help!

It could be quite alot of things perhaps as simple as a sparkplug. Are you able to get a workshop to check for any codes that the computer may have logged. This could pinpoint it straight away.

Happened to me, sparkplugs were good, ended up being intake manifold.
