Idle And Cold Start.


Recommended Posts

Just popped out and double checked mine from cold.

Started at about 1500 rpm

After a few seconds dropped to about 1250 rpm.

Then after a few more seconds dropped to about 1000 rpm.


Cheers m8, mine takes a bit longer than a few seconds, I can drive diwn the shop and back and it will then drop to 1250ish, sounds like a throtle body clean then .

Mine revved high at idle when I first got it. Same as yours.

I took it to Lexus on the 3rd day of ownership for a full service.

When I picked it up it no longer revved high at idle, I just assumed that the service sorted it but they may have adjusted it or done something else? I don't know. No extra on the bill tho.

Mine and my wife's 200SE both rev at 1500 rpm on start up then when warm at about 500-700 I would say. They both take no more than 5 mins to be up to optimum temperature. (Driving that is)
