Thumbs up

Hi guys. I've recently bought speed 6 and I love it, but i think im running high rpm. I am not tottaly sure so I wanted to ask you guys first before I go to the dealership. So every morning when i start the car it starts running at 1900 rpm at the first then gradually as it heats up goes down to 700-900 rpm in neutral, I still think it's kind of high rpm. What do you guys think?

Yes, that is the normal RPM range. Around 2k during its warm-up cycle, and then around 800 rpm idle when warm. 800 is high? I feel as if that's pretty low. What do most modern cars run as their idle?

Cars with auto trannies will idle lower than the same car with manual tranny; 600 - 650 rpm is typical. 800 - 900 rpm is typical idle speed for a car with manual tranny.

The high idle at start up, when the engine is cold, is also normal. It's like the choke in old carbureted vehicles. It will slowly drop down as the car warms up.

That 1900 rpm in the beginning is normal for the car. That`s just the car warming itself up.

I was just about to post this EXACT same question. I know most cars rev up a bit when they are cold, but 2000 did seem pretty high. Glad to hear it's normal.

I believe it's an emission control strategy. I don't like it, but it's common. I wonder if late model V8s do cold-start warmup that high, 2K is not trivial rpm.

My '92 Mustang GT idles just below that when you first start it cold...like 1700-1800ish, then drops.
