According to the book my 2.0L 16v should idle around 800-850. But it seems to be always at 950-1000. This is regardless of the chip fitted and all of the other buggering about I've done with the car, summer or winter motoring. Is there a way to adjust the idle speed or is it all smoke amd mirrors stuff? I cannot see anything obvious in the workshop manual. Or does everones car to that???????
This has been asked recently. Do you have the last MOT emissions test slip ??? This will tell you your actual idle speed. It seems the Tacho may not be that accurate at low revs. My tacho says 950-1000rpm, but the emissions test revealed my car ticks over at 814rpm !!!
