1997 Clio 1.2 Idles very high
I've got a 1997 Renault Clio 1.2 Petrol.
The car refused to start because of (I think) a flat battery. I jump started it, but the engine now idles with very high revs. I haven't tried driving it yet as it sounds so dodgy.
Do you have any ideas about how to fix this?
This might sound stupid (I don't know much about cars!), but is it ok to drive the car when it is constantly revving so hard? I'd really like to drive it to the garage, but I don't know if the engine will fall to bits if I try!
Any help would be much appreciated!!
