Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Why does my 2001 Xtrail 2.2d on the first start up each morning when temp is around 0 degrees run at what I would judge is normal idle with choke but after around 30 sec gradually rev up to around 250

Hitting the accelerator pedal quickly as per sticking choke / throttle does not change anything and it seems everything is fine after returning to idle! This does not seem to happen when temp is around -5c in the morning and does not happen after first start up of the day?

I'd suggest getting the OBD codes read , if there is a sensor/switch causing this that should find it , this sounds like one of those vehicle anomalies that has no answer but it is interesting , keep me posted if you wish

This is a very common problem for ford. I have the same thing every day. It is the computer not reading the temp. When it does that just tap the gas pedal.

SOURCE: 1997 Saturn SC2 5-speed idling/revving oddly

there are a couple of things to look at. first take a look at the tempature controll sensor, its on the right side of the block. It kinda looks like a spark plug sticking out the side of the block. If its cracked or broken then it will mess with your idle. Also you should be checking your throtle body control censor and your throtle body. clean everything out. also the BWD Ignition Module/Control Unit. If its cracked it will cause this exact problem. I would also add a general tune up with spark plugs and wires. If you follow these directions I think you will be good, if this does not work let me know, I can give more info once I have a better idea.

My `94 toyota camry 2.2L, in the morning starts fine the RPM is at 1100, then when it gets warm it goes dowm to 800 RPMs is that normal or it should stays at least between 900 or 1000RPMs, please somebody...


high idle on starting is normal as it is the same as a choke being on. When it drops back it should be around 900. However tacos in cars are not real accurate under a 1000 rpms so have it checked manually with a rev counter. Run the fault codes to check for a problem.

Choke problems


I take it that you have a carby in which case adjust the choke cover so that the cam engages the throttle lever and holds the throttle open until the bi-spring in the choke cover moves enough to move the cam out of the away allowing normal idle. If you have efi (Not from your choke word) then run fault codes and see which sensor is faulty. There should be an idle speed around 1200 RPM idle in efi for around 3 minutes and then the idle should drop back.

2001 Plymouth Neon gets a little hotter than normal when parked or idling, but cools back down during driving


i would suggest making sure you have proper level of coolant in it and maybe go with a lower temp thermostat like a 140 or 160 degree

2001 Kia Spectra Problems


I am not familiar with this car model but i would presume that the engine is linked with an automatic choke for cold starting and the revs should go down as the engine starts to heats up. this probably works on a vacuum system based around your inlet manifold, and the noise your hear could be a leak in the vacuum pipe. you should pop your hood before starting and try listening for that noise to pin point it's location. if your lucky you might just find a small crack in a pipe that can be replaced with ease. of coarse first thing in the morning would be the best time to check this when the engine is cold.it's worth giving it a go and i hope you get it sorted,good luck

What temp should a/c be in 1995 chev on max


Hard to say.
Under normal conditions, vent temp should be about 20 or 25 degrees less than outside air temp.
So if outside air temp is 90 degrees and the engine is at idle speed, vent temp would be around 65 or 70. On the road the vent temp could be less than 60 degrees.
If outside air temp is 70 degrees vent temp will be around 40 - 50.

Choking in the morning and after rain, but it is gone after driving for 10 minutes


Pour a little water around the base of the coil while running and if engine stops running thats the problem.Coils tend to get small cracks that moisture gets into.Caused by engine heat and its own high operating temp.
