Default Strange feeling at idle

Have felt this 3 times in last 2 weeks so figured I'd ask the experts. At idle the car almost feels like it is going to shut off (I never can see the RPM's fast enough) - it makes me think the RPM's are dipping and the computer catches it and pushes them back up. Has happened in Park and in Drive while sitting at a stop light. The first time I had just started the car and attributed it to a "cold" start (although it's still 90 degrees here in FL). Now that it has happened a couple more times I'm thinking something is going on.

Ideas? 2010 460 with 75k miles.

OK thanks- no codes. Just a very quick feeling like the car might shut off (it doesn't). What is TBS?

I think he meant TPS (throttle position sensor)

In a situation like that I would just kee; driving it until it either goes away or gets worse

If you bring it into the shop now they are just going to bend you over with a bunch of stuff it "might" be

Those are all Hybrids. He has a 460, not a 600. Am I missing something?
