Fast idle

Does anyone else think these cars idle a little too fast? To me it seems like when stopping, it idles a little too high making it harder to stop. Does anyone know of a way to idle them down?

seems fine to me. but i would imagine the idle is electronically controlled and it would be hard to change it.

What are you idling at, mine sits at 700-500rpm that is ridiculously low, any lower and it will shut itself off

On a cold startup, idles around 1,500 for a minute, then once fully warm, drops to about 600-650. If you've got your A/C running full blast, this will bump the revs up to about 800 or so while waiting for a stoplight. Nothing out of the ordinary if you're experiencing the same as me.

It can be adjusted but by the dealer only as it is computer controlled. My 370Z would idle too high so I had to take it in and get it adjusted, took the tech all of 2 minutes, it was out of factory spec for whatever reason.

Or if you prefer you can purchase your own Nissan Consult 3 to do this: http://www.uobd2.com/wholesale/nissa...stic-tool.html or http://nissanconsult.spx.com/overview.aspx

not talking about the fast idle at start up. It just seems like the last 5-10 MPH it's still pulling. Tach is around 1000-1100 at 5-10MPH but then drops to around 700 once it comes to a dead stop. Guess she just wants to run

I think that is for emissions, in the old carburetor-ed days we had "idle decel valves" which did exactly as your describing only today it's computerized.

Ahhh I gotcha. Mine kinda does the same thing when on the brakes coming to a stop. The revs kinda hang a bit and then drop suddenly. I gotta say though, with the latest ECM and TCM reflash I had the dealer take care of last week, it's definitely helped that issue.

Is that a recall type thing or did you go in and ask for a reflash? I'm also seeing a lot of new threads about poor brakes...should we start a poll to see who gets the first rear-ending of some poor sucker in front of us??

Eh, I got the TSB performed to get rid of the "booming and vibration". A nice side effect was that the engine and trans was more responsive down low in the revs and the symptom you're describing is a bit less noticeable now.

I have no complaints about the stock brakes on mine. Lord knows I thrashed the hell out of them on the Dragon

The other day I was sitting at a light and I thought a truck was behind me, then I realized my car was making the noise, think it's time to get this TSB done
