fluctuating idle / high idle problem
Just recently my 2000 automatic XE King Cab has been idling weird.
When coming to a stop at a red light, the idle stays at 1000 RPM's, then slowly drops to 650 -750 after 10 seconds or so.
The other problem is when coasting at 45 mph. The idle fluctuates between 1500 and 2000 RPM's.
I don't have any check engine lights as of yet, but I don't know what is going on with the idle. It mainly seems to be idlling higher than normal, then slowly drops back down to the normal idle.
Other than the idle problem, the engine seems to run a little less responsive than normal.
I recent replaced all the vacuum hoses, but that didn't cure the problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
