I have a 1984 380SL. The idle speed when cold and ambient temp at 65-80* is around 700 RPM. After i drive it for a while and the engine warms up it will idle at 1500RPM when placed in park.
Is there an adjustment which can cause this? Where is it and what doe's it look like?
Thanks:confused:

Idle control

Thanks for the reply and link. I have read the posts and it sounds like I need to check the idle control module. Can anyone tell me where it is located on an 84 380 ?
The problem is erratic, some times it idles at 700 RPM after a trip and the engine is warm. I will check the plug / socket and the condition of solder joints if I can find the module.
