    2012 & Rough Idle

    Hi everyone,

    I am really enjoying my new CR-V, except that in the last week I have noticed that it is consistently idling at around 1000 to 1200 RPM's. I am bringing it in to be looked at tomorrow. Has anyone else experienced this? I understand that a normal idle should be around 600 to 650 rpms.

    Thanks for your input!

    I took it to the dealer and they checked it out and could find nothing wrong. I was told that it is normal for the CRV to idle at just over 1,000 RPMs in the morning or whenever starting it after it sat a couple hours. He showed me a couple other 2012 CRV's that were new on the lot and started those for me and they were identical to mine. I assume then this is normal? My husband's 2007 Ford Ranger idles at around 750 during identical conditions (cold WI morning).

    If you are referring only to a cold idle, then your 1000 to 1200 rpm is actually a little low (especially for a cold Wisconsin morning). Mine (as well as the many test vehicles I drove) idles a bit higher in a California climate. If instead you're talking about a warn engine idle, then something is definitely wrong. As for your husband's truck, if it truly idles at 750 rpm in a cold Wisconsin morning, there is likely something wrong with the truck.

    There should be no problem with any sensor since thats a new vehicle
