IDC High idle

Hey all

Well straight to the bug i have, car starts 1st time idles like it should when cold, warms up and is still great, however after a few miles you pull up and the car is at 2000rpm or just over constant in neutral, the only way to get the RPMs down is drive it in high gear as that pulls them down at a slow speed, or turn off and start again <<not always works <<

its a 96 jap turbo

iv cleaned the ICV
always has good fuel
not long had a small service

Any clues to what you guys think it could be would help.. Oh and the engine light also came on and whent off again
