Does the check engine light come on while the engine is running and if so any codes?

NO just idle's up high then down and back up high
Expert:  brownjeff replied 6 years ago.
OK.....Make sure no vacuum leaks and if good then clean the throttle body. Also remove the idle air control motor out of the throttle body and clean the passage way for it. What happens over time is these will build up with carbon and cause idle problems.
