High idle in gear only

High idle in gear only

Postby ccookie66 [OP] » September 27th 2012, 8:25pm

I have a new issue with my Astro. It idles fine in park, but in gear it idles pretty fast. When I put it in reverse I don't even need to touch the gas, it will just go. Same with drive. When I put it in park, it drops back to normal. Put it in gear, idle goes back up. :confused: Whats going on here? There is no service engine soon light on. I'm thinking its an IAC issue. I also noticed when it is cold, first thing in the morning the idle will go up and down in park. I comes out of it after it warms up. :confused:
