Got in the car this morning and when it started up, it idled between 2500 and 3k. First time it has done this, and the temperature today is not any different than any other day this week. Would this be a cold start injector issue? Partially sticking throttle from the night before? After driving for about a mile, the idle returned to normal. Is this a normal thing with the M20 engines? I think it is just a minor nuisance, but want to make sure it is not a sign of something more serious about to happen.
