Hi guys!
Since I have this 155 1.7 my rpm on idle is 1000 (when machine is warm)even with activated fan and lights.
Is it controlled by ECU? or is there mechanical way to lower it down (at about 850)?
I saw little screw that stops gas lever... :rolleyes:

Hi Igor

My car also sits at 950/1000rpm indicated by the rev counter. However, when I got the car MOT'd, the sheet I got back says the car ticks over at 814rpm !!!

I think you will find the rev counter is not very accurate down at idle.

you could have an air leak if not you can do it via the 'little screw'but its not really the ideal way to do it.

it doesnt sound fast, and its very constant so I think there is no air leaks...
maybe rev counter is not accurate at idle (Marlon)Cheers! wink
