are both suffering from the same type of problem???
any help would be appreciated!!
Is it cold where you live? On a cold motor the engine does rev up (
high idle) until the engine temp increases then idle rpms decrease. But you state that it returns to idle, therefore it goes from 2k rpms to how much after one second? and is it only doing it at start or stopping at a light etc.
