Hi guys,

What the normal idle RPM for a 2014 Auto?

Here is a picture of my bb at idle.

LuisBlackGT 02-15-2014 09:24 PM

I have 2014 gt, and that is exactly where mine idles so I think it should be the same

Ranger052 02-15-2014 09:27 PM

I have been getting some vibration through the steering wheel so I didn't know if that is normal or not

LuisBlackGT 02-15-2014 09:27 PM

Is it while your driving or just idle?

Ranger052 02-15-2014 09:28 PM

just idle

LuisBlackGT 02-15-2014 09:32 PM

Hmm, how many miles on the car and have you done any mods yet?

Ranger052 02-15-2014 09:33 PM

0 mods and 1250 miles

LuisBlackGT 02-15-2014 09:38 PM

I'm not sure about the vibrations sorry. Hopefully someone who knows can chime in to help

Ranger052 02-15-2014 09:40 PM

Thanks

sunnytan06 02-15-2014 10:00 PM

Around the same. I have a manual. Hope it helps

Ranger052 02-15-2014 10:10 PM

Thanks god I am not alone lol

sunnytan06 02-15-2014 10:19 PM

What makes u think there's something wrong in the first place tho if u don't mind me asking

Ranger052 02-15-2014 10:21 PM

no no no I am not saying there is something wrong jeejj I just want to know of that is normal or not :) this is my first mustang and I am just getting use to it :)

silvrbullet2012 02-15-2014 10:27 PM

I have a 2012 manual and mine did the same. I just replaced coils and raised my idle by 100 and it's smooth now. Haven't had a problem since. I thought it was my a/c at first but it wasn't.

sunnytan06 02-15-2014 10:30 PM

U use a tune to raise the idle?

Ya. I have a SCT tuner and you have an option to raise/lower the idle. So I just raised mine. Lol

sunnytan06 02-15-2014 10:33 PM

What is the difference?

Ranger052 02-15-2014 10:57 PM

will a tune void my warranty? and could the dealer find out if I have a tune?

How does one raise or lower the idle on our Sct tuner. I don't think I have seen that option for my bama hybrid tune.

Depends on your dealership. Talk to them if you are worry about your warranty. And yes they could find out how many times you tuned the car.

Ranger052 02-15-2014 11:16 PM

Awww :(. I though tunes were not an issue for ford :(

sunnytan06 02-15-2014 11:23 PM

I hope that's the case too lol

Is your car tuned?

sunnytan06 02-16-2014 12:02 AM

No. I am planing to do a steeda tune tho

Whitelightning 02-16-2014 12:15 AM

My idle is that. 700 rpm. It'll dip down to 600-650 and shake some then come back up. Been playing with it to see if the accessory stuff is making it do this or not. I have 87,000 miles on mine and is bolt on and tuned.

willb2305 02-16-2014 11:32 PM

on the diablosport trinity tuner to raise your idle rpm you go to performance then it should be under one of the settings to change your idle rpm and neutral rpm. i think its set at 650 or 700 at default i raised mine to 800 on both idle rpm and neutral rpm. Also by raising the idle rpm if you have longtube headers you will see less dips or stuttering during idle that happens with longtubes.

bucko 02-17-2014 08:00 AM

The idle comes up a bit whenever the AC is operated....

My idle is at the same as the OP, but I do not feel any sort of engine vibration in the steering wheel. I too operate with a tune (MRT 83 octane), but did not request them to change the idle, nor have I looked to see if my tuner allows for me to change it. Since it is not an issue with my 2011, I've not had to look into it.

But it does make me wonder if I could...

AJcruz1 02-17-2014 02:31 PM

Does anyone know if a dirty MAF sensor could cause problems idling?

A symptom, yes.

Go here for more symptoms of a dirty MAF, and the proper way to clean it (instructions mention to "pluck it" out of the air filter box, but Our Mustangs have it held into the air tube (runs between the throttle body and air filter box) with two screws):

Yeah I know where it's at. Thanks for posting the link. Gonna take a look at it as it may be causing my idle woes. I've took it out and put it back Ina number of times now and having a CAI with oiled filter makes sense it might be a little dirty.

AJcruz1 02-17-2014 03:43 PM

Never mind it's clean. Looks brand new.

ON your SCT tuner, before you put the tune from anyone in, there is a message about changing things. When you go into that there should be a list of items that can be changed that the tune maker did not block out. My past Bama tunes didn't have anything blocked out.

You should see Idle Neutral, Idle Drive in the list. On another point, many folks pay money to have tunes that Idle "Rough", like ghost cams emulating the old school Huff and Puff Idles of the 60s and 70s big race cams. (not for daily drivers)

I can tell you the factory stock idle vibration of a V6 2013 3.7 mustang is nothing like the hell that a 5.3 Chevy truck V8 with AFM has that they call "normal". AFM by the way is Active Fuel Management when talking about Chevy hell. Not All Ford Mustangs ;)

It's the same on Diablosport tuners. You can change the idle if you want.
