    2000 sls high idle

    All of a sudden my idle stays at about 1100 to 1200 rpm. Might jump up to 1400
    than back to 1200. Car only has 44,000 miles. Could this be a memory thing, or sensor?

    It could be a bad idle air control valve. Could also be a vacuum leak. Check for codes and let us know. My guess is the IAC valve if nothing else changed. You should post this in the Northstar section. I would move it, but I don't have mod privileges here...

    I agree with Mcowden, either the IAC valve or insufficient vaccum mainly to the FPR (ie. a vaccum leak).

    The next day we drove the car -things were fine. I'll still keep your ideas in mind.
