Re: [DML] High idle (2600 rpm) until temp hits 180 degrees


Yes it is common for a Delorean to idle higher when it is cold, but 2600 rpms is higher than it should be. You may want to take a look at the idle speed motor and see if it is operating properly.

Is it normal for DeLoreans to idle high upon a cold-start until the temp hits about 180 degrees? Lately, it takes about 5 minutes after a cold start before my D warms up to 180 degrees and then the idle lowers itself to about 800-900 rpm. I don't recall this ever happening to me in years past. Thanks!
