Hi..my kia avella rpm reaches for about 1200 rpm when I start up in the morning and gradually decreases to about 600 rpm.but it takes 10 mins bfore the rpm goes down.is this normal?m And my engine loses...


Yes, that is normal operation for an engine. It needs to run at higher idle when cold and the computer does that through the temp sender. Make sure it's not excessive due to any vacuum leaks. This and the AC power loss would be exaggerated if the engine is not running correctly.

What happens if the drive belt breaks


if a drive belt breaks, the debris can interfere with other engine components and do additional damage. rule of thumb belt life is 6yrs or 60000 miles. the belts operate critical engine systems ( alt, water pump, power steering pump) not something to short cut on. belts are noisey when cold due to additional load from battery use when starting or cold fuuids. have belts and tensioners checked for wear and correct operation
