rough idle/die out/mil

need help guys..i have a 2000 9-3 and lately it gets a rough idle and dies out with the engine light flashing...it sets a p1260 code I read about the throttle body spring so I keep resetting the spring and clearing the code...over the weekend I made a trip down to the yard and picked up a throttle body from a 2003 9-5 and it's doing the same thing....both bad really? or is there something else I need to be looking at...it also had a p0300 misfire but wasn't sure if they were related or one set by the other...could the 300 cause the 1260?
