Is 220d Idle Rpm

Recommended Posts

Hi, has anyone experienced an idle RPM of 1200 from cold, my 220d does this from time to time. When it does it it stays at 1200 until the engine is at normal running temp, which I find strange as on other occasions it idles below 1000rpm which I think is normal. Phoned Lexus Glasgow about it who said they would look at it but didn't think anything could be done.

Also noticed that when it happens my mpg sems to be 3 to 4 mpg lower on the same trip.

Cheers

I think it's normal to have a slightly higher rev of 1200 when still warming up, I suppose. After a while mine goes down somewhere to 800.

Yes it's normal and one of the reasons why MPG in town suffers....

Cheers for that. It just seemed strange that it does not do it all the time!!

I find it happens intermittently until the Temp guagae is nearly at mid range... :blink:

If you drive in town until this point, your MPG is low 20's. After that point, it's mid -high 20's... :duh:
