I am having a problem w/ my 914 as of late. After running for a few moments the rpms at idle go from 1.5k at start to around .4k. I am aware of the additional air intake with cold starts, and I wonder what the problem is after the engine warms. I recently had the starter replaced at which time the problem began. Before then the issue was non-existant. I recently moved to a new state and am not familiar with a reputable mechanic. The one (and only) that has been introduced to me has some what of a God complex and makes me feel uncertain upon his character. What may I try, to resolve this issue. Thank you for the consideration of a response. Joe R.
