Default Re: Temp gauge does not go past 1/4 mark and sometimes the car idles at 1500RPM on pa

OldNuc beat me to it but that idle issue definitely sounds like the throttle position sensor. I had the same thing with my '02 when I bought it. Intermittent high idle, that was fixed by turning the car off and back on. I went ahead and paid the bucks to get the OEM one from a dealer. It's an easy part to change, just don't drop the screws in the process.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
