    Odd start up problem never seen or heard of before 90, Auto.

    I DO have something unresolved similar to a crank sensor failure but am able to move the car around ok usually.

    Today cranked and had a no start.
    Second try I got a start but with odd missing vibrations feeling.
    Starting again now and did this twice :
    Start and stable idle.
    After about 5seconds the CE light flashed - I think 3 times THEN it went to a consistent and steady high idle of i think 1500.

    I am away now and was not able to do quick code check.
    In all the years - this is a new one to me!
    At least maybe when I get back to it , it may lead me to the unresolved intermitent problem which I know I have to address.
