Hi Anonymous, if it has carburetor there is an adjustment screw with a spring behind it on the right side of carb. If you are fuel injected then, I COULD be WRONG, but the onboard space shuttle computer system that interfaces with a Boeing 747 diagnostics system, might get angry at you for just thinking about messing with their delicate alliance. I would take a ride over to your local dealer's service department or reputable shop and get their opinion. If it's something simple I'm sure they would be happy to adjust it for you at little or no charge. Good luck

Why does my Infinity Q45 idle at 1500 rpm when every thing is connected and there are no vacuum leaks?

If the motor is cold it will have a higher idle. If the battery has a low charge, the computer will tell the motor to rev higher to get the alternator pushing out higher voltage to charge it.

Oil gauge drops low at idle

Low oil pressure at idle can be caused by an engine with worn rod or main bearings due to (usually) high mileage . This however does not mean the engine is still not serviceable as long as the oil pressure is low only at idle. The pressure should at minimum get into the normal range at anything above idle speed.Not much oil pressure is really necessary at LOW speed. At low speed, as long as there is oil getting to the bearings, even at low pressure, you are OK. In a high mileage engine the oil pressure is often low at idle simply because the oil pump is turning slowly and cannot maintain higher pressure between the larger than normal crankshaft and bearing clearances. As speed increases the pump turns faster and supplies more oil and the pressure should go higher. Low pressure as long as it is only at idle is not a problem. However at higher speeds the pressure should be in the normal range. Such a worn engine can benefit from higher viscosity (thicker) oil such as 20W-50 in above freezing weather and 10W-40 in winter. That will increase idle pressure and the thicker oil film maintains a better film between the worn parts

Is a 650 to 750 rpm idle low for a 2009 honda crv or is 650 normal?

That sounds pretty low to me.
It usually rests above 1000 then higher as the high idle solenoid engages for air conditioning.
If your A-C is on, your engine should increase idle.
Try starting with no AC then turn it on after the engine warms up.

1990 Honda Prelude. Low idle after warm up.

Hopefully fixed the problem by setting the idle a little higher. I think the IACV is ok.
