Revving at idle

I have a 2007 V6 and it has been revving at idle (park and at stops) slightly (with RPMs a little above 2 then down again). The engine light just came on as well. Any idea what that might be? Any thoughts?

usually the ecu ups the revs to compensate for a flat battery and gives the alternator more chance to produce power.

However, your engine light will have thrown a code. Get it scanned with VCDS.

All vw/audi engines must use 507.00 spec oil except non-DPF R5/V10 engines that must use 505.01/506.01

Duff PCV?

If you rev it at idle are the revs slow in coming back down to tickover?

Any error codes? Most likely its a dirty throttle body.
