Hello and welcome!

Thank you for your question. My name isCustomerand I will be happy to assist you today. I am reviewing the details now.

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 9 months ago.

Is the check engine light on?

Are there any codes in the computer?

Does the engine stall out at all?

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

May I start by getting your VIN?

I am actually not working on the car now, I am at work but planning ahead
yes and yes, no it hasn't stalled out. I am at work and can't talk on the phone
at the moment

thanks anyway.
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 9 months ago.

You are most welcome.

We can talk then.

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 9 months ago.

Otherwise, we can continue on this page, but I will need a lot of information from you in order to provide you with a quality answer.

For example, I would need your VIN or engine size and I would also like to know if there are any codes in the computer and or if the check engine light is currently on or has come on recently when this high idle condition occurs?
