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.

What is the factory Idle rpm for 22re efi engine


I've seen from 500 to 1500 RPM in all the manuals I've been through, depending on the year and application (truck/car). In personal experience, 650-800 RPM is acceptable warm operation range. This will also depend on elevation. Will go up to 1200-1500 RPM for cold starting. I live at about 2000ft and my '86 Pickup 22RE idles at 725-750 like a top after about a 3-4 min warm up @ 1250 RPM if it's cold (<45ish).

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

99 Rover 4.0 idles around 1700 rpm? Was told by dealership this is normal not to worry? Can't be true. Has anyone else had or heard of this to be an issue?


If the car also uses a heap of fuel,it may be the auto choke is stuck on.It may also be other things but thats a good place to start.Get it fixed because you will not be doing the transmission any favours by having it rev that high.It is NOT normal.Idle should be around 750 rpm. I suggest a different workshop.Hope this helps

1992 isuzu trooper 3.2 DOHC 4X4 LOW IDLE GOES UP AND DOWN 750 RPM TO 1500 RPM


I had the same trouble with my 93 Trooper.

I went on a sensor-changing spree.

The one sensor that fixed this idle problem was the throttle position sensor.

You can get one here.

Throttle Position Sensor

It's very easy to change, and fixes the problem instantly.

Good luck.
