Default Car sputters

At idle my cruiser sputters. When gas is applied and driving it idles fine. Only at complete stops do it sputter. Just change plugs and wires. Was a lot worst before the change of plugs and wires. What else can I check?

Any codes, air on or off, and any recent work other than you mentioned performed?

Hmm.. might want to check, clean, or replace your idle speed control solenoid. They get old and dirty

Is your A/C on when it "sputters"?

I have error code 1684 and 0601. No the air isn't on when the car sputter or more like idles really low at stop. You can feel the slight miss in the engine. As soon as you apply gas the car run very smooth. Maybe the idle control sensor? Is there a way to test it.

0601 is pcm problems. 1684 just means your battery has been disconnected. no worries about that.

0601 is control module read only memory. What exactly does that mean? Would that make the car idle funny? Took a PCM off another 2001 just in case a need a different one.
