Probably a long shot, but this may be the "green connector" problem ...

There are green connectors under the dash on the driver's side. They are only supposed to be connected for testing/diagnosis purposes and should be apart for normal operation. One symptom of connecting them is a check engine light with multiple unrelated codes when read. Another symptom is the cooling fans running way more than they normally do and all the solenoids clicking. Don't know about the effect on idling, though.

Something to be aware of and check.
