What you are describing sounds normal. RPM's stand for revolutions per minute. Each minute your engine is running, the pistons are going up and down. When you are not going anywhere, your engine is idling and so the RPM's should NOT be very high. However, when you race up a hill, your RPM's SHOULD be high because your engine has to work hard to climb the hill or to go fast.
Idle speed= 650 Revolutions Per Minute. That means your engine cylinders each work 650 times in One minute.
At freeway speeds, your engine will revolve somewhere between 1600 and 2100 times per minute. I hope that helps.

Revs seem higher than normal in my 2005 Suzuki Swift Sport (3.3rpm in 5th @ 100km/hr) - is this normal? I also have a really high fuel consumption rate


2 issues,
1: MPG, you failed to say MPG, 15mpg? or 39? is 39 low?
what MPG? you never said it?

2: rpm cruise. (what drive line, A/T M/T ?) what tranny?
first google hit , is this it? this yours?
engine: 1.5-litre 4-cylinder petrol, 75 kW/133 Nm
Transmissions: 5-speed manual, 4-speed automatic, FWD

3300 RPM in 5th and 100km
if you wish to now what is normal, find the final drive ratio, listed in the FSM. Id say this is normal. typical of tiny engines, with low torque.at lower RPMs.

if you have the A/T and IF the trannywere to slip, the TCM will infact throw DTC codes, telling you it did.
IS IT? (scan tools show you this fact as might that glowing CEL lamp on the dash, on driving.

RPM
my 1.6L spins 3000 RPM , at below tranny options valve counts.
54/59mph (104km/hr = 59) 5sp MT.
64.6 4sp A/T (goes fastest due to more aggressive OD + axle ratio is lower.)
56/.53 2sp A/T
see how drive line effects RPM? so will your cars options.

I have a 4x4 89 s-10 4.3 v6 fuel injection. When I start my truck it idles high. After 30 to 50 seconds the idle goes back to normal. If I put in in reverse or drive when idle is high my back tires spin...


Sounds like the rear pads are worn out, your front brakes are keeping the truck from rolling. You need to have the high rpm checked for that 30-50 seconds as it is called the "cold start routine" and is meant to rev the engine for that time period. There may be an adjustment to keep it from over revving, check the specs for the rpm.

Even if you fix the rear brakes, the stress on the U-joints and differential or transmission is needless and can be fixed by limiting the high rpm in the "cold start cycle".

Why does my 2000 ford taurus idle so high when i start it


this is normal, if the idle wasn't high (about 2,500 RPM) the engine wopuld stall out until it warms up to normal temperature. If it is above 3000 RPM for more than a few seconds you have a problem.

99 GT Forester: Idle Support?


Turns out my airflow metre was fried. ($240 piece of plastic) Was told the cause may have been because of the air pod and long country driving. Have been advised to put the factory airbox back on unless car is used for high performance or wishing to gain maximum performance. After mounting a front cooler on, this should provide sufficient cool air to engine and turbine for every day driving.
