Question about 1997 Suzuki Baleno
Hi,i own a used '04 suzuki baleno.The odo reads 95000 kms.While starting the engine the first time for the day, the engine seems to be fine and the engine idles around 900-1000 rpm .After sufficient warm up,the rpm comes down to around 600 rmp approx.Now, at this rpm,heavy vibrations can be felt in the seat and steer ring(wheel).all maintenance has been promptly done, got another 5k kms for next oil change,throttle bodies cleaned.otherwise the engine functions smooth during higher rpm, cruising etc.gas mileage is around 12.5 kms per liter of gas which seems fine.Could this be the reason of bad engine mounts?
Which engine.??? never post lacking engine ,here is why.
1.3 L G13B I4
1.5 L G15A I4
1.6 L G16B I4
1.8 L J18A I4
1.8 L BP-ZE I4
1.9 L XUD9 diesel I4
Ill answer in the generic and for GAS engines. only.
that is illegal RPM, the ECU regulates it to 800 all the time
that means the ECU can not regulate the RPM now, for many reasons.
and sure it vibrates too low, that is normal for all 4cylinders to do that.
no bad engine mounts never lower RPM to 600, ever.
they dont control idle speed at all.
the #1 reason for most cars to idle too low are:
1: EGR leaks, (clean it)
2: ISC stuck closed (electric idle speed acututor dirty) clean it.
3: gross misfiring , caused by bad spark or bad fuel mix.
4: low compression on 1 or more cylinders (real low) Do compression test at WOT. throttle.

ok theres a pcv valve located between the carb and the valve cover. its screwed into the intake manifold. make sure it is hooked up. also check for any vacuume leaks. if you find any cracked hoses, replace them.
also for the guy whos sami sputters on turns. check the ground stud located above the battery on the firewall. if its loose or corroded clean it up and tighten it.check the ground strap coming from the distributor area between the engine and firewall. make sure its in good shape. alot of times the distributor o rings leak oil on the wiring and rot it out. thats easy to repair also. check your engine mounts by standing on one side of the hood and grabbing the engine and pulling it side to side. the mounts are known for wearing out. they are fairly easy to replce and cheap. about 20 a piece if not less.

you probably need to check the butterfly. its the compinent that controls how much air goes into the engine if it is weared than in idle state air leaks into the engine sometime more sometimes less and cause fluctuations in rpm
secondly there is a rpm switch which controls the rpm you can replace that switch and check

Probably air-flow meter trouble. Take them out and gently clean them with cotton bud's and petrol. Cleaning may not be enough one may be faulty and need replacing.

Why does there need to be some underlying problem.
It maybe leaking while driving, so you do not see oil anywhere.
Regular oil checks are required of any car, new or old.
Did you add oil and see how low it was?
If it was 1-2 quarts low it maybe alright.
Add oil, run car for a few days and check it again.

Throttle position sensor. Pull the plug and clean it with brake clean. Never use thinner on your car it eats rubber. Brake clean cleans oil and carbon and doesn't leave a residue. And it doesn't eat the seals out of sensors. It drys to quick.
