Incorrect Cold Idle Speeds?
I have recently purchased a 2000 SE and I believe I have an issue with the cold idle speeds.
When cold, the idle initially jumps to just under 1500 rpm and then settles at about
1,350 for about 20 seconds. After that it gradually drops to 1,100 over the next
60 seconds are so. From there, it drops to 1000 and never goes below this point
until the transmission is placed into drive. When the engine warms-up, it idles at
When I first got the car, the rpm dropped much slower than what I outlined above.
I replaced the idle air control valve and this helped, but I'm still wondering if the above
cold rpms are "normal".
Can anyone relate what their engine idle speeds are when their engine is cold?
