Hi all, 

 

I'm new to the forum, just picked up my PT Cruiser on Monday this week. 

 

Everything seems to be running smooth so far, the only issue i can find is that the idle seems a little low. It shakes a little, whether the engine is hot or cold and sits between 700 and 800 rpm (roughly). 

 

I'm not sure how much of an issue this is but all of my previous vehicles have idles about 1000rpm. 

 

Any help is very welcome!

 

Thanks

Martin

Oh really? That’s good to know! I was a little worried that I bought a car with an issue! Thanks for your reply, saved me a potential trip to the garage!
