Another Idle Question
Hey everyone, i have a 01 GT has a CAI but everything else is stock. She has 75,000 miles on her. Since i bought the car a little less than a year ago i noticed and odd idle once the car warmed up. It likes to idle at about 800 rpm (Later today i am going to hook up my scan tool and get a real rpm reading) None the less once the car is warmed up at an idle it seems to drop in rpm a bit causing a rough idle. This happens while sitting at an idle every 30 sec or so. I would say almost a 100 rpm drop or less. I have changed the plugs, fuel filter, cleaned and re oiled my air filter. Now this is what i think it is, I think it may be a bad / clogged cat. I went to get something out of my trunk the other day while the car was idling and warmed up, and the exhaust temp coming from the tail pipe was not only hotter than any vehicle I have ever seen but also did not smell right. Not sure how to explain it but wasn't normal ( Just plain stunk) I appreciate everyone's help and input!
Oh and the car has no codes coming up.
Shutting off the thought process is not rejuvenating; the mind is like a car battery - it recharges by running.
