I've been having random high idle for a year. Would happen every time I started the car cold. Would happen about 50% of the time during driving when clutch is depressed. Most of the time at around 2000 and occasionally more up to instances of 3000+. Maybe it would go higher, always shut it off when it tries that. Only way to bring it down is to turn car off and restart. This past week it's been out of control. Occuring almost 100% of the time clutch is depressed. Shutting off still works but now it comes right back. Tonight, after driving all day and then sitting in parking lot for about 4 hours, I started her and drove a couple of miles in town to a drive-through, where I had to shut her off and restart her to kill the high idle. About a minute later the idle bottomed out and tried to die. Tried to catch her but lost her and almost couldn't get her restarted. Had to feather the gas because simply depressing the pedal would make it die. Now at the beginning of every gear she will buck and try to die if I attempt to give it gas at all. I made it home by letting her accelerate herself up through the gears. I could give her some gas at the upper part of each gear and shifting up late would help get passed the lower ends but from a stop, getting through the first 3 gears takes forever. Took it to Autozone and here are my codes:
What just happened to her today? She's practically undriveable as of tonight.
have the same problem?
