Question Revs staying high before idling correctly.

Hi, hope someone can help me out. car has been running fine up until this morning. went to restart the car having already travelled 3 miles then leaving it for 10mins or so. Straight away noticed the engine light was on and it was running what i would call juddery. managed to get home and check out the problem online and took a punt at the coil pack as my local auto supplies had one v cheap. Fitted part and started up, car runs perfect except for engine light still on and the revs stay at about 1100rpm for 5 secs before settling to normal.

thought it was strange that both problems occured at he same time and is it possible the coil pack going has knocked something else out?

Would also like to comment at how amazing all the members are at helping out by continuously posting new ideas.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers steve
