    High idling

    Hey guys, I'm driving an 03 wrx 2.0 with 207 thousand miles. Engine was rebuilt professionally around 15 thousand miles ago. My engine usually idled at around 500 to 750 rpms. But if I'm driving on the highway or free way for a good while and then go to stop and go traffic or to a drive through it will start to idle around 2000 rpms and will do that until I start driving again. Just wondering what's going on or any ideas. Thanks

    Common issue was the cruise control cable unit tightning after driving/underhood heat. Try adding some slack to the cruise control cable on the throttle plate.
