VW Passat having Starter issues.
I have a 2000 vw passat 1.8t. Which I just installed a new starter. All my connections are to perfection. Yet, now, when after about 20 minutes of the engine being on, it starts to idle up, revving by itself and dropping. i noticed oil leaking above the starter but its a minimum. Before the starter went out, and needed changed, it never did this. My husband is car illiterate and only knows how to drive, put gas and change the oil. So even while 8 months pregnant, I am still the mechanic that's doing the work. Just never had a problem like this. So could there be a clog, or pcv valve issue, even perhaps some sort of vacuum leak... Something simple? Hopefully? Any help in directing to fix this problem would be appreciated.
