Idle at 1000 rpms?

Oh, and no, a new battery will not help your misfire issue.

All cold engines idle higher than ones at operating temperature.

It's decidedly far-fetched, yes. I'm willing to try whatever theories are introduced to me if they don't require any investment. I just wanted to get it started up and show that it does, indeed, still run. :P

On a semi-related note, the Cutlass is finally running again, as well. It's been dormant since last fall.

True, I've just never seen one idle that high on a cold start, but I suppose it could be partially attributed to that it hasn't been run in a long time.

I've seen many idle at around 1250 when started up.

The Cobalt idles around 1500 on a cold start.

I think the Intrepid idles around 800-1,000 rpm cold start, 600 when warmed up. The Shadow has a fast idle...1,000 rpm...one of those things that need to be tweaked.

Wow...that's more than my motorcycle. I've never known cars to idle that high. My car idles around 750 when it is cold.

Personally i would take a rubber mallet and hit the engine block until it works correctly. You should also do this to the rear brakes.

The only thing that will fix that car is 8 pounds of C4 which i can arrange...

How about filling it up with gunpower and shooting some tannerite that you wedge between the window and the door frame?

cold idle for mine is around 800-1000 then once warmed it hovers around 500-600 it sort of sounds like its skipping though... may be the xtreme energy hydrolic cam :scratchchin:

Why not just fill it up with match heads and blast it off mythbusters style.

I would take a thousand years to get that many match heads together.

Or strap rockets to it like the first (and even better) 2nd test with that Impala.
