Re: [DML] High idle



My car had this "creeping idle" last year, but it has apparently stopped 
by itself (!!?!).  However, I did notice that running the A/C was enough 
of a load to drag the 2000 RPM idle back down to normal.  There is a 
collection of historical advice on this subject at the DMCNEWS web page:

All of this has happened before; all of this will happen again.
