sounds like what mine did...it would rev up to 2000 once you got it started, then, once it hit the first tick on the temp gauge, the idle would drop to normal, and everything would be fine.

It was the CTS.

the CTS is a brass thing in the intake.  It has two prongs on it at a right angle from each other...it sits right side up and down near the number 1 & 2 runner

And, yes...that could have something to do with it...could've rid the wires that go to it by accident confused0024.gif

the CTS and the temp gauge sender, have the same plug (2 prong) and they are fairly easily mixed up, try swapping them, see were that gets you. It seems to be happening a lot lately, lol

if it wasnt 1:30am i'd go try it now. No i did not cut any wires. I finally fold the clutch fan thread. no has had problems like mine. So i'll go with the CTS. I'll get more pics tomorrow. It is a pain to have to take the fender off to chech things. But i had 3 years of no problems soo. Now on too problem number 2! the windows worked fine put them down and it started to rain. well now they dont go anywhere.

On a side note. The CF air dam fits alot better then i thought it was going to. It doesnt want to move much, so you have to be carefully. But otherwise i like it!!!!

its probably your fusible links causing the window problem... should have re done all those connections before you sealed it all in there...

mine only worked when the car was running for awhile, wouldn't work with just the key on.

Turned out to be the main fusible link (also lead to my alt not charging the batt)
