    Default high idle

    Any ideas on why a car would start to increase its idle for no apparent reason. Mine used be about 1000, but is now 1600 and sometimes higher. Is my Motec system doing this? sticky cable?

    I had this problem with a 306 and was advised to take off throttle body and clean with carby and injection cleaner.Didnt change much so then put injector cleaner in with fuel which did help and is what perhaps you could try first.

    Vacuum leaks in the intake (past the AFM)? Wrong or inconsistent advance (dizzy caps wobble around), plugs old and tired (or incorrectly gapped), many other things (sensors defective) etc.
