    Well, this is interesting....


    So, today the car had 0 issues.....

    absolutely 0.


    Im rather perplexed.
    And i showed my dad and told him what happened, and he said i must have lucked out, since today there are no issues!



    Although, he did say something, that i never thought was bad...

    He says its idling too low, like its at 750rpm when he said it should be at like 1100rpm.

    Is he correct? how does this get corrected if he is?

    It's a bit low, but it is OK. Most cars (at least most that I know (all are manual)) are idling at 800rpm, so I guess it's OK. There are some cars that are idling at 1100-1500rpm at cold start for about 2 to 5 minutes, but after that all are idling at 800-850rpm :) You can check yours - if the needle is staying all the time at 750, it's OK, if it's jumping around (600-800), than it should be checked.

    No, after its warmed up it sits at about 750, by my best estimate. My dad is saying its 600, but it looks more like 750 to me.



    Also, when it was higher, it was easier to drive...

    Is there any downsides to higher idle? (other than gas consumption)
    Also, is this electronically controlled or is there a physical 'valve' so to say? (im prob not gona change anything, but im curious as to how it works)

    what size is the engine?

    Mine is a 2.5L V6 stick, and when I have it in neutral with the parking brake its at about 750, sounds about right to me. Sometimes jumps to 1000 when I start turning things on.

    haha I wouldnt frown at that, your not gunna be racing with it or anything but the gas mileage will be substantially better.

    Actually mine isnt too bad, I get about 25mpg in the city, and over 30 on the highway, this is using premium of course, your should be equal or better.

    Enjoy the stick too! best thing driving wise that ever happened to me, drove my buddies Grandam GT the other day which is auto, and dammmn is it sluggish, never going to back to auto.
