2.0L Petrol Cold Idle Speed
« on: February 01, 2017, 12:10:28 pm »
I got my 2.0 Takuya a few weeks ago and notice that on cold start up (at any time of the day) the engine idles up near 2000rpm, it drops to 1500rpm within roughly 20seconds and then slowly drops to normal 750rm as the engine warms up. Is this normal? Even on mild mornings (10-12degrees) it idles up near 2k rpm, is there some reason for it? I have been driving for nearly 30 years and never had a car idle so high when cold, even in 2010/2011 in the coldest winter I have known when morning temeratures were at -15degree, my cars at the time (Honda Accord 2.0 Euro R and Legacy 2.0 petrol) never idled higher than maybe 1100/1200rpm when stone cold. Its a little off putting especially when driving and coming of the clutch and finding myself having to brake as the engine is running faster (and therefore driving the car faster) than I need in traffic etc etc

On startup from cold mine idles around 2000 rpm and as it warms up drops to idle around 750/800 rpm.
You need a bit of throttle on moving off when it's warmed , but that is all.
Sounds like yours is pretty normal. :)

Look at life through the windscreen, not the rearview mirror.
