I thought I held the key in too long so I put it in neutral and tried again this time barely turning the key and it didn't seem to do it. Was it just the key or could there be more to it?
I had the same issue with mine and I thought it was idling too high. I asked a mechanic and he said it may do that when it was cold. Mine was happening every time I started it so I just turn on the cruise control and decreased the ďspeedĒ even though I was parked and not moving and then it would idle at 800. After letting it sit for a month without starting it, the problem went away.
Iím interested in what people may think is the root problem. I have a FE, Mercedes 926 engine.
