cool 1987 thunderbird turbocoupe fast idle

Hi,
I am Cast. I own a 1987 thunderbird turbo coupe. Sometimes when I start the engine it goes into fast idle approx. 1500 rpm and won't come down. There are times when I start it that it does not go to fast idle. In the past, when I shut the engine off and restarted it, the idle would go back to normal. Is there anybody out there who can please give me some advice? O own a Chilton Manual 1983-1992 Thunderbird Cougar ,but I can't find anything which covers this problem.Thanks Ken

It could be the IAC sticking. Have you checked for codes? Fuel Injection Technical Library How To Run a Self-Test

Cast, I just bought an 88 Turbo Coupe and it's having the idle problems you described. Did you ever get an answer as to what the problem with yours was? I'd appreciate any info as I don't want to just start replacing things and hope for the best! Thanks, Michael Pahl pahlwest@yahoo.com
