View Full Version : Strange idle problem

02-13-2007, 04:28 AM
I went to the drug store really quick to get some stuff, on the way there i noticed that my oil light was red (didn't warm up the car) but the car drove fine as usual. When i came back out of the store and started the car it started to rev up by itself. It would go from 1500 rpm to 2000 and back down and up, as if it was possesed by the ricer racer ghost. Any idea what sensor is going bad, it does this when the car is supposed to be idleing but other then that it drives fine.

It's late i'll start reading up on this in bently tomorow.

Idle control valve? when was the last time you changed your oil? You coudl also have a vacuum leak.
