Normal Idle RPMs '98 V70

Post by Eddystone » Tue Nov 14, 2017 10:07 am

Just curious...

My '98 V70 when fully warmed up regardless of outside temperature idles at an indicated (on the dash tach) 900 rpm.

Is that what others see, or is that high. My car runs just fine in all respects, but that seems high.

Actually, I see in other forums show this as normal.

850-900rpm is what all my P80's have shown.
