2005 Buick Rendezvous Question: Fast idle on my Rendezvous

 

Question

My 2005 rendezvous has begun to idle in excess of 2500 rpm s, whether in park or neutral. if you leave the motor running at this idle rate, the temp. gauge will go to the 3/4 mark for a little bit and then drop back to normal. In drive, you can reach 50mph without touching the accellerator. No dash lights ever come on and a diagnostic test revealed nothing wrong. If you turn the motor off and restart, it may be fine for a few minutes, then begin to idle fast again. Thank you

    idle air control motor may be bad or gross vaccuum leak. take it to a shop for them to verify.

    Thanks, Roy. I have had it to my local guy twice...when you say gross vacuum leak, would that be the intake manifold gasket?
