It depends.... The warm up phase can be different from day to day. Somedays when its colder, it will idle at a higher RPM during warm up, and then other days it wont have to. My Q, on really cold days, will go up to about 1200RPM, and then drop back down to 500. Now, it goes to 1000 during warmup, and then goes back down to 500.
I cant really tell you what is happening, but it may be time to take it in (or if you have a service manual) and tune it up.
Things I would do to get a better idle:
clean TB intake hose
I cant remember if these cars have MAFS or not, but if they do you can spray some brake cleaner on them (use brake cleaner because it will not leave residue)
There is a sensor type thing that controls the idle (dont know the specific name) that may need to be checked on
I would not take this to a dealer to be done, because most of the stuff done you can do at home with little or no experience.
okay i just changed my vehicle speed sensor today and then when i drove it got the code for engine knock sensor error(not sure if thats exactly what the code says) So where is the knock sensor at? And could i have unplugged it while changing the other sensor? Thanks
I recently purchased a 2000 Cadillac DeVille. When I turn the key to the start position, it fires right up like it should... BUT the starter sometimes stays engaged.. even when I shut the motor off and have the key out the starter will continue to spin on its own... I've been checking google and...
96 Sedan Deville blew the idler pulley. Any heads up when replacing? Old one has a cupped piece that mounts between the pulley and the block. New pulley does not have that piece. Do I simply use the existing bolt - seems it would work. K_C
Can anyone tell me if it would be less expensive to replace the 2002 Northstar engine compared to rebuilding it. Runs great, tired of putting oil (3-4 qts.) between oil changes and using antifreeze now. No leaks and cannot see anything through the tail pipes.
As a result of driving on LPG, I experienced compression leakage during cold run on cyl. #1. Both the inlet valves leaked as a result of burnt valves/seats due to lean mixture burning in cyl.#1 causing a higher combustion temperature. The lean mixture was a result of bleed air being mixed at the...
