92 chevy idles real fast on cold start up, then after run warming up runs fine

Not an uncommon issue for one to idle fast while cold but , 2000 rpms is a little higher than normal. May want to check the engine coolant temperature sensor for proper voltage and the coolant level. Also, check for small vacuum leaks around the throttle body gasket.

What should my 2010 camry rpms be at in park starting the car

Hi Joseph, When starting the vehicle from cold in cold weather, the RPM can be as high as 1300 and in temperate climates about 1100 RPM. The RPM will drop to normal as the coolant is warmed. Normal idle speed is between 750 for Auto and 650 to 700 for manual transmission. Regards John

1989 ford f250 high rpms when first running

When you feather the accelerator the rpms should reduce to about 700-800. If it does then that is the way Ford intended. I have a 92 F150 it does the same thing, perfectly normal operation.

Temp gage dropped below szero

Is there coolant in the cooling system? If there is not enough coolant the sensor won't pick up a signal because it's not sumerged. It could be the thermostat is stuck open. Are you in a cold climate, is your anti-freeze stong enough? Your cooling system could be froze. If my calculations are correct 70 km is a little over 4 miles. I'm thinking frozen radiator.
