GT JTS Revving Question
Hello its me again, just a general query about the revs on my car.
I have noticed sometimes at idle the revs can blip a bit higher and then drop back down. so its revving at 0.75 and then will go closer to 1 and then drop again.
It has a lumpy idle which is a JTS thing (I actually like it lol)
When I dip the clutch while driving the revs drop to about 1.5 and then they drop very slowly down to idle (0.75). TBH my honda civic did this, never bothered me and it doesn't bother me much now but I am curious more than anything.
The 2 months I have had the car I have done over 2k miles been trouble free and its had a full cambelt and a full 60k service including pollen filter.
I get about 320-340 miles to a full tank (when the fuel light comes on) and it appears to be using about 1/3 litre of oil per 1.5k miles since the service. Service was done by Alfatech in Hudds using 10w60 oil and I am using 10w60 Triple R carlube for the top up. They have given the car a full clean bill of health.
Also everyone talks about misfires, apart from a fault code and it beeping is there any other way to tell? Will it be like when a Subaru misfires and there is a nice bang from the exhaust ? lol
