Idle revving suddenly started to go high
Got car out this morning as usual, parked it while locking garage, and car is revving between 1500 and 1700 revs while the car is sat idling.
Has only started today...seemed fine yesterday.
What is the cause of this, and is it easy to fix?
Is it the idle control valve? Have heard of it, but don't know what it does.
Drove to work normally, and revs go below those that it was sat at whilst idling when in gear. But as soon as I stop rather than between the 900 and 1000 mark as normal, it goes from betwen 1500 and 1700 constantly up and down.
