My name is Russ and new to the forum! Canadian, eh!

My vehicle is a 2008 mazda6 four cylinder with 210,000km

Been a real lady up till now but lately it starts well while cold but when I drive away and slow for a stop the idle drops to 500rpm, however when it warms up it levels off at 750rpm and seems to run perfect. When I park and let it sit 15+ minutes and the engine is still warm it takes 3-4 seconds of cranking to re-start?

I cleaned the throttle body and tried a bottle of STP gas treatment(wishful thinking) but no change.

My search has told me changing the ECT sensor might help but as it is a little tough to get at I was looking for some thumbs up or would I be wasting my time?
