Hey, my son called up that when he stops at a light his idle begins to climb, and climb and up over 2,000 rpm plus as he describes.

It was idling fine this morning. What would I begin too look at?

1984, Subaru Brat. Non-Turbo, Carberated 1800. 185,000 miles.

He tried punching the gas pedel to step it down and that didn't help.

Thanks in advance.

Also: FYI: it is hot here, 90+ today

Tell him to stick his toe underneath the pedal and attempt to pull it back up. If the idle drops after doing that, you can replace the throttle cable ($9 at napa) and all will be well again.

I think that is the problem. I shot everything down with W-D and drove it around for an hour and couldn't make it do it again so I think that is all it was. I let my son in on your recommendation next time.

Thanks for the reply.

Check to make sure you have enough slack in the cable between the cable bracket and throttle lever
