    Idling weird.

    Lately my car has been idling higher than normal. It idles at 1-1.25rpm. It used to idle at 750rpm. Is it the weather or what??? Also my temp gauge always sits at the bottom for a couple of minutes before going up, it used to go up much faster.... i'm rambling and in a hurry so this probably doesnt make any sense...

    does it happen all the time, or when the car is warming up? Mine will do that for about 5 or so minutes while warming up.

    the weather is colder, so it'll take longer for the car to reach operating temp

    as long as when your rpm settle back at 750 when your car reaches operating temp, you should be ok

    Could be an exhaust leak too...I have an up pipe leak and the car idles funny sometimes and stutters a little until the pipes warm up then it seals itself.

    Hmm.... this could be it. If it is a leak it is between the turbo and the downpipe.
