my car idles at 2k and 3k.



i dont get this, once in a blue moon it'll go back to where it used to idle, 750-800rpm but it does it at random, generally once i start driving it goess back to 2k.



where the throttle cable connects to the TB it shows the throttle as CLOSED...the throttle is hitting the throttle stop screw which i adjusted to have the thing idle at 800rpm.



the TPS bolt isn't connected but never has been, even when it idled perfectly at 750-800rpm.



ive changed NOTHING except added a slight coolant leak.



anyone have ANY ideas i didnt move any settings at all.



only difference is the temp is like 1 degree fahrenheit outside.
