When stopped in gear, it seems to take quite a bit of brake to keep the car from creeping. The car doesn't seem to "engine brake" hardly at all - I have to ride the brakes down residential streets. The tach shows a (rather rough but steady) idle speed of 800 rpm whether in gear or in neutral with AC off. Cold this be a transmission / torque converter problem? Vacuum leak? Leaky injectors? I do get a 1222 engine code. My fuel milage is a consistant 19.2 on my combined city / highway drive to work. Not really a seroius problem, but irritating. Any tips would pe appreciated. Thanks
