Starting off, this all seemingly all happened overnight. (2002 Acura TL)

Getting into my car this afternoon it started up without hesitation. Once in idle (In Park) the RPM's stayed just at, or below 1,000. The car was also shaking oddly. It ran very rough.

However if you rev the car, everything goes as normal. There is no engine hesitation, or backfire. Once the gas pedal is released the rough idle begins again.

Once the car is put into drive, it varies in the distance it will go before it dies. Anywhere from 100ft to 500ft. There is no problems shifting the car, no matter if it is in drive or reverse.

I can not for the life of me begin to target this problem. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I saw a similar problem like that on a Camry and it turned out to be the mass air flow sensors are dirty and blocked making for rough idle and shut off.

I have a friend who is a mechanic. First thing he did was grab a wire brush, and cleaned the egr passages.
Started the car and it ran better than it ever had.
