Stilo 1.8 (2002) idle issue.

My 2002 1.8 is having idling issues!

It does not matter if the engine is cold or not (but it is more pronounced when cold).

When starting the idle is rough jumping up and down a bit (few 100 rpm) and without any throttle input the engine is going to cut / die. There is zero issues with it when driving, stopping... (idling just fine there).

It has 150kkm on it (the last service was done few months ago (filters, oil, water pump, belts, tensioner...)

Any help would be appreciated!

It's clean! (no dirt or anything in it)

Make sure is clean on the inside, after the throttle plate. Also check the sparkplugs and make sure there's no oil on the sparkplug wells and clean the coils from any moisture (make sure also clean the rubber on it, it can be removed).
Make sure to disconnect the battery for about 45 minutes to relearn.

If still bad iddle, would suspect bad timing. I also have an 1.8 with terrible iddle and it was the timing. Bought camlocks and did it myself.
