Check Idle Speed and Adjust if Applicable

Idle speed is an important aspect for transmission engagement. If set too high, when shifting from neutral to drive or reverse, the engagement will be too abrupt, causing not only driver discomfort, but also affecting the components of the transmission as well. And, of course, if the idle is too low, it may cause the engine to stall or idle roughly.

To adjust the idle speed:

• The engine should be at operating temperature.

• All accessories should be off.

• Place the transmission in park or neutral position.

• Engine cooling fan should be off.
