I get in my car, turn it on with the heater off!! I just turn the rear defroster on... Let the car run for a 1minute or till the ilde needle get to about 1500rpm. Weird but with this engine, when its cold out and I start the car, the rpm jumps to around 1800rpm and starts going down the longer I let the car run... I think its the automatic warm up sensor for the engine... so like after a minute or letting it run, the needle drops to 1500rpm and I pull out and drive no more than 3000rpm till the temp gauge is at middle.

Anyone else's car jumps to like 1800rpm when the first turn it on when its cold out?
