Question about Lexus Cars & Trucks
My 2006 Lexus IS220d SE has recently started to cough and splutter before stalling when at idle. its usually after a couple of mins of the car being in idle. the revs jump from idle to around 1500 rpm a few times before it stalls. once this happens it struggles to start up again, have to lock and unlock the car and after that it starts normally. no error codes or lights are showed?

most of times stalling problems are related with crankshaft sensors have your crank sensor replace and see if this will take care of your problem

Common issue at the shop (i'm a ford technician), here is what I do to correct it.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
