    Occasionally when I let off the accelerator pedal the
    ICE will race. Has anyone experienced this racing condition.
    It is not like the car revs up and stays there, it happens for about a count of two. and then it drops back down.

    I have noticed this mostly when the engine has not been run
    for a while. It seemed as if the "transmission" was slipping
    in addition to the racing issue. any comments would be appreciated.
    I just want to know if this is an anomoly with my particular car or if
    others are experiencing the same phenomena
