    Rev Question

    Hi People,

    I don't know how best to explain this but here goes.

    When revving my car which a mk4 1.6 8v Astra, it seems like it takes a long time for the revs to fall to idle.

    Also when starting the car the revs go quite high then again take along time to drop to the normal idle rev.

    Hope i explained this well enough for you to understand ..

    Thanks in advance.

    I was suprised with my first astra with how long it took to drop back down, think its just an astra thing, forever gets me going from 1st to reverse bith a lil grinding because the revs hadnt dropped enough when I change...

    As for when starting it should go up to about 1000 to 1100 rpm when cold then after a min or so will drop to 800 or so as the automatic choke has dropped down a bit...
    N.b. any opinitons expressed above should be ignored and considered 'ramblings', under no circumstances should they be relied upon...
