My Se-r does that same thing until it warms up. That's normal to a certain extent. Does it drop down to 750 and stay there or does it fluctuate?

It should idle high until the engine temp starts to come up.

Hi onephatser,
Yes, once my idle hits 750rpm it is very stable.
As you say, I may be looking at something as a problem, when in fact the symptoms are quite normal.
Maybe it is the fact that I have a problematic gear box, and it is that, that is exaggerating the issue.

My 200sx s12 does the same thing with the gearbox. Second is a real bitch until it warms up. Try using Royal Purple gear lube in your gearbox. It seemed to help mine shift a little easier when it's cold.

Hi Guys,
I have good news! I think I have solved the problem!!
After hours of investigating the purpose and function of the air control valve. It turns out that due to a faulty connection, I was not getting any voltage to the heater that operates the heated bi metal spring. Once I had re made the connector, hey presto! I had 14 volts running to the heater. Have tried it several times now and each time the RPM drops progressively withing a few minutes.

Onephatser, I like the idea of the gearbox lube. I will get some this comming weekend and give it a go.

Still, now that I have hopefully solved this problem, I will be looking at many more issues I need to resolve.

Speak soon.

Dave.
