      Found this to be odd when I started the car this afternoon. The RPM's kept going higher and higher while I had the car in park and just after the engine turned over.. When I put the car in gear the RPM's dropped and settled as they normally do.

      Any thoughts?

      Well today at lunch time, cel light came on. solid cel.

      Took it to the dealer and got it diagnosted as running to rich and they found the problem to be the intake hose was disconnected. What does this look like? Anyone got a pic? How does that happen?
