All Complaints

UPON COLD START, IDLE RACED AT 2800 RPM AND WOULDN'T DROP TO NORMAL 800 RPM EVEN AFTER BRAKING AND BRIEF STEPS ON GAS PEDAL. RACING EVEN CONTINUED WHEN CAR SHIFTED INTO NEUTRAL FROM DRIVE. PROBLEM CONTINUES EVEN AFTER DEALER SERVICING ON 11/24/2000WHERE SERVICE BULLETINS CHECKED, FINDING NOTHING ($46.41 CHARGE) AND THROTTLE BODY CLEANED AND LINKAGES LUBED. DANGEROUS CONDITION CONTINUES. ONLY SOLUTION I HAVE FOUND--TURN ON IGNITION, LET CAR IDLE RACE A FEW MINUTES, THEN TURN OFF IGNITION. WHEN IGNITION IS THEN TURN ON AGAIN, IDLE APPEARS TO FUNCTION NORMALLY AT AROUND 800 RPM. OTHERS, INCLUDING SENIOR CITIZENS, MAY NOT DISCOVER THIS FIX AND CONFRONT AN OUT OF CONTROL, NONE BREAKABLE CAR RESULTING IN SERIOUS COLLISION. SUSPECT SOME OTHER PROBLEM, POSSIBLY DEFECTIVE COMPUTER CHIP--WHATEVER ALLOWS IDLE SPEED TO DROP AFTER WARM UP UNDER COLD CONDITION.
