Anyone got a clue why my car has started idling at random places between 1600 and 3000 RPMs? It seems to "stick" at a given idle for a while (as in each time I return to idle), but doesn't necessarily stay through the next on/off cycle. It can change without a key off event. It locks in on whatever it feels like being at pretty well, but obviously idling at 3k is quite annoying. Or anything over 1600 or so, really.

What's perplexing is that it isn't the same wrong. Thoughts?

Edited to add: Throttle linkage and return spring *appears* to be fine. Blipping the throttle doesn't do anything to help. It'll just return to whatever wrong idle it's currently stuck at.
