D13 is idling high

When im idling My volvo 670 with d13 engine It will idling fine (600 rpm) then all of sudden rev up to about 1100. If I tap the clutch or release the parking brake it will stop and go back to normal until i take foot off clutch or set brake again then it goes back to 1100. Anyone got an idea?

Does it ever end?

When I first started I was a nervous wreck. And now after a year I look back and feel kind of silly for it. So yes being nervous is normal but I wouldn't over do it. You won't be put in a situation you can't handle while you're in school or with a trainer. I'm more worried about the people who aren't nervous, the know it alls

Beer in the sleeper

Thanks for the answers. Kind of surprises me that on such a serious issue there wouldn't be a more cut and dry answer. I've been out for a few months now and doing a restart and just wondering, but better safe than sorry I guess.

Beer in the sleeper

Is is against federal law to have an open alcoholic drink in the sleeper while off duty?

I am not asking for opinions. I know it's a bad idea.

I'm not asking for company policy. My company has zero tolerance for it.

I'm not asking for bac levels while on duty; I'm not even asking for bac levels. I know all the levels.

I just want to know is the act of having an open beer in the sleeper illegal. I can't find a clear answer online or in the FMCSR
