Hello. I have a 1996 Mercury Sable, 65K miles, 24VOHC.
I start the car in the morning. The RPM revs all the way to 3000, then it
waivers between 2000 and 3000.
After a long time, it MIGHT work its way down to normal idle (1000) and then
it will jump from 1000-1400.
Sometimes, it revs up and then just sits around 2000 rpm .
All of this is in Park.
I hate having to put in gear at 1500 rpm just to get to work, because the
car shoots forward and it is not good on the transmission or engine.
When I am idling in traffic (1000 rpm), it will sometimes just shoot up to
1500 rpm, then back down
Something is giving this car gas, and it ain't my foot!
All recommendations appreciated!
