Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
somtimes my engine will start to race after it has warmed up.It has done this twice
in the last couple of weeks.I tried stepping onthe gas pedal but that did not stop it so I turned off the engine and started it back up and it idle normally.

Light on? Sounds like an idle air control problem, pcv system on this motor gives some trouble also.
