Just started happening today, I start the car and it's revving at very low rpm's. I gas it a little and the car just shuts off. I can hear a clicking noise from the engine but not sure where it's coming from. Has this happened to anyone? Or does anyone have any thoughts as to what this might be? I'll have to take it in I suppose...

Thanks in advance..

Take it in..clicking noises are never good.

That being said, my 06 when it was stock never held idle really well until it was nice and warmed up. After a factory reflash the stalling was fixed, but the throttle response was junk until the water temps were well into the 170's.

Do you live in a very cold area? It doesn't get cold in SD, but some days when it is around 50 ("cold days"), I notice that it's really sluggish for a couple miles, but fine after that.

Not at all, I'm just a little north of you (I'm in LA).
