1989 High Idle
I have a 89 yj 4cyl that idles great when cold but when hot reaches about 12-1300. I cannot find anyway to lower this..any ideas.

Yours is still a carbureted engine, right?

89 Four cylinders are throttle body injection.

Same issue with mine. Take some carb cleaner and begin giving little spritzes around the joints. If you have an airleak somewhere, that will let you find it pretty quickly.

An air leak would cause the mixture to be lean (more air than gas), so the system is dumping more gas in to get the mixture correct, causing the high idle, or so I am assuming.
