does it happen all the time or just occasionally? Mine does that occasionally, and had it checked. There's no manual adjustment on this, I'm told. The ECU dictates the idle speed according to various parameters given by different sensors (air temp, humidity, etc.).
The dealer reset the ECU, and it seems all fine for me now.</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Under the hood there is a sticker which states the recommended idle RPM. Can't remember the exact number but it's around 820RPM isn't it?
Mine is always around this mark...but my 147 is garaged and in a moderate climate which no doubt helps.
