    Idle concern

    any body have an idea why sometimes my hawk starts to idle to fast going through the gears clutch in sometimes shoots up to 2000 rpms. seems like the only way to stop it is to turn off the motor for a bit. and then it may not do it again for a few days..

    It could be the Idle Air Control valve sticking. It mounts to the throttle body.

    Any DTCs?
