occur with the engine warmed up. It idles ok for a few minutes after start up, then once warm, the idle kicks up to about 1200 rpm. The rpms falling off too slowly isn't a consistant problem. One other funny thing that happens, which I haven't mentioned yet, is after start up, just as the water temp starts to get out of the blue on the gauge, the engine feels like it tries to cut out. It does this a few times and then once fully warm, that problem goes away. I'd assume this is the O2 sensor kicking in just as temperature reaches a high enough level. I think I may be chasing a few problems here, but figured that if I explain everything that's happening, maybe it all ties in somehow and someone will recognize the problem(s). Thanks..
