Question type: Maintenance & repair

idle speed low when warm, rev counter reading 600 rpm tries to cut out when coming to a stand still when dipping the clutch, i can rectify this when i switch my rear window heater on and off, but when i come to the next junction and dip my clutch, the car ticks over at the 600rpm.
