frown idle problem

does your xr6t idle in an erratic way? when i start up the car in the morning, the idle of trhe car goes up to about 1200rpm, i thought that was normal just to get rid of the moisture and oil circulating through the system.
but when it reaches the optimum temp, the idling of the car starts to jump. it doesnt have a beat to it or anything, just very annoying. and when im cruising on the freeway and have the cruise control on, you can feel the diffrence in how the car feels in speed.
you guys had this problem at all?

Take the inlet hose going into the throttle body off then open up the butterfly in the throttle body and stick in the base of a screwdriver so the butterfly stays open get a clean rag spray the throttle body and the rag with carby cleaner and clean the throttle body this will fix your stalling issue and idle problem if you have any

Maybe they forgot to connect the vacuum hose from the top of the rocker cover to the plenumn tube like they did on the Grey Ghost

Re: idle problem

obrut6, thanks for the reply. i took the xr for the 3000k service last saturday, and what they told me is that the ecu takes comand of what the throtle is doing. now, i have two other cars and this is my first brand new one and my other cars dont do that.
i just want to know roughly whats causing this prob from you guys first so if the dealer bullsh*ts me again, id have a little bit of an idea what it is.

This sounds likely beepbeep. Had a similar issue with the XR8. The service dept of you dealer can check this in a second.

I had the stalling and rough idle problem reflashing DIDNT cure it.
so got a nice clean white cloth soaked it with carby cleaner which ended up black by the way with the crap in there and hey presto smoooooth as now.
