Why's the sky blue? Why are boobs good? How does a posi-trac rear end on a Plymouth work?

I am around 800-900, I wish it were at 1000-1100, it vibrates less.

No, it would've been easier for you to just search and not even post at all. Why don't you be a little resourceful instead of just expecting everyone to hand you everything?

I'm sick of answering the same ****ing questions hundreds of times because people can't comprehend how to use the search function. If I come off as a prick to you, sorry, but it's just real frustrating, you know?

Re: What rpm should i be idling at?

Now if he where to search instead of just being told "600-800" he would also know that an idle is higher when your car is cold.

A lot of people adjust their idle when its cold and **** their **** up.

We have detailed guides and previously answered questions on everything.
It might just be a simple idle, but if you search first you'll find a lot more information that might help you.

Troof. Preludes aren't THAT special that they will have their own idle speeds. Almost any 4 banger should be idling from 600-900 rpms. My grand am is a v6 and idles smooth at just under 500.
