It's important to consider whether the reaction is exothermic or endothermic when trying to determine the outcome of changing temperature on a reaction. If the reaction is is exothermic, raising temperature will favor the reverse reaction, which means it will increase the rate of the reverse reaction more than it increases the rate of the forward reaction. The opposite is true for endothermic reactions, in that the rate of the forward reaction will increase more than the rate of the reverse reaction.
