The RPM does come down, it just kind of hangs there for a long time before it starts to come down. When I stop, the idle drops of to 800.
An example is when I speed up to say 50kmh to go down a flat street, I can let the gas off and it stay at that speed for at least a few blocks before starting to slow down. I haven't waited long enough to see if it will come right to a stop on its own. That will be another trial tomorrow.
The RPM drops to about 800 when the vehicle is stopped. When I start the car with my foot off of the gas pedal, it will rev up to about 2500 rpm. Then it will drop, but takes about 30 seconds to get to 800 rpm. When I shut it off and start it up again, it will sit around 1500 rpm and then slowly come down to 800 rpm, this takes about 30 seconds.
If I rev it up while in park, it will drop fairly quickly to less than 2000 rpm, but will take about 30 seconds to get back to 800.
I did look for vacuum leaks and couldn't find any. I will look again tomorrow. Are there any certain hoses that I should check real well?
The check engine light isn't on.
