I the bike has carbs (not fuel injected) then an air leak between the carb and cylinder has developed. This leans the mix and increases idle speed. Usually the rubber parts get hard and then cracks show up, and that is where the extra air gets in.

Oil light comes on at idle but ok when under revs

Common problem with the oil sending unit. Replacements available through most auto parts stores. Single wire runs to the sending unit.
I'm pretty sure they're on the right side of the engine.

When the car sits for a week the carb goes dry and is very hard to start.It also idles fine one day and the next day it idles rough and runs rich.

If you want to prevent the Carburetor from dry after sitting for a while I suggest letting the car run for 5-10 minutes . I do that with my 78 El Camino SS 350 and after the carb is primed it starts right up

2000 Ducati 900ss idle speed seems high

That's waaay too high ! Very hard on the tranny when you click it into gear at that rpm, find your idle screw and turn it down, should not be over
1,000 at warm idle, info should be in owners manual...good luck to you friend...Tim

Idler is too high on start-up, goes up to 2.5-3 rpm. and comes back to normal. just started a week ago. what could be the problem? 2005 Chevy Aveo

I bought my 2004 aveo 49 miles. I've had several issues with the car. But recently I been experiencung high idle at start up and clutching. I change IAC. Plugs and wireds. Nothing worked. Today the high idle became constant. It was a metal bubble flex tube near the IAC unit that goes to the exhaust stuff down behind the motor. It apparently was cracked cause today it broke causing the constant high idle sound like a vacumn. We blocked it off with a stick to get the idle back down to 900 rpm instead of 3-4000 rpm took we can get to auto zone for high temp hose per Chevy dealer. I hope this helps someone cause it was fustrating and costly.

SAAB 900 s 1997

you should check your fuel pressure and be sure it is within spec, is this a 2.0T or a 2.3 non turbo and also this is fuel injected correct? same as the U.S.A. 97 saab 900s? if it is a 2.0 with direct ignition try changing out the DI cassette with a friend or junkyard unit to see if that solves it -Jeff also please rate
