Re: high revs when idle

OK, is it ..... when cold, hot, left idling, after throttle release? A little bit more info would help but I have an idea of something but wont say till there is more backup for it.

Re: high revs when idle

When cold it`s at 2000 rev`s but when engine is hot it will eventually cut down to under 1000rev`s but this could take 5 to 10 seconds to do so . I ask a local machanic and he thinks it might be a senor reading the temparture thanks ger. i am new to this so i am still trying to find my way round
