Recently purchased another 1600i and love it. It's not perfect but it's solid in all the right places. The only issue I have is it sometimes revs high on initial start up.
On start up, when cold, the engine revs increase quite rapidly without touching the accelerator, ( although this doesn't occur every time ) to the point its revving so high, I turn off. If I start again everything is as it should be, it starts around 1200rpm from cold and quite quickly falls to around 820rpm once upto temp.
I've checked the flowing;
Accelerator cable - free and not snagging
Butterfly in throttle body - opening and closing as expected
Vac lines - free of any splits or damage.
I am fortunate that I have the diagnostics and cable so have plugged into ecu and all measuring blocks are within range and there are no error codes logged on the ecu.
Other than this issue the engine is sweet.
It has been sat idle with hardly any use since 2013 - which I know is not the best for any engine, but I've changed oil and filter, air filter etc.
Any thoughts on what maybe amiss would be appreciated.
