    The idle stays high, throughout the time the car is on. It only comes down while it is in gear and moving, but as soon as I push in the clutch to down shift etc the idle revs up again.

Coaster idling high and high fuel consumption

Water temperature is low cost oil is certainly the easiest way is with a hard shell to block part of the warming effect of the radiator well as for how much you want to try to stop. Idle temperatures will rise up relatively low. What is the pull speed? Not run fast but continues to run uninterrupted some time. Usually two hours can be. Is to allow the engine to reach full swell purpose. Such a shift is to be based on the vehicle speed and the reference engine speed. Not based on the engine speed. Driving is probably the single 30 towards third gear, fourth gear towards forty, fifty five-speed ahead. Many people on the car ahead of change. As long as the engine sounds smooth, no trailer can be.

1992 dodge spirit with codes 12,25,33,51 the problem im having with the car is that its idling really high, sounds like a jet engine. It used to do this then when left idling it would idle down and drive...

The problem is the idle air control solenoid. If not that there is a vacuum leak somewhere in the intake. It's getting too much air in other words. Hope it helps.

(1995 Cadillac Eldorado) - Service Engine Soon light is on.

If this problem just started I would try to get a jump on it. It will be easier to track down if the light just started coming on. Otherwise other problems may come into play and the mechanic will need longer to sort them out. At around 70.00hr.Cheapest fix is to try and drop in a set of plugs. Good luck.
