well, the old term for what I wondered is, "does the engine'RACE'" when
cold... that is TOO high.
Generally the engine will go to about 1200- 1700 rpm for a few second..
then gradually down to 1000 rpm.
If it stays high until you kick the pedal, that's a symptom.
I won't even tell you how long ago it was that I owned anything with four
cylinders. Suffice to say that it had a carburetor and the 'idle speed
controller' was a little screw preventing the throttle from closing
altogether. Yet idling at 1000 RPM sounds a bit high, even for a little
engine. Just wondering...
