    Hi guys,
    I am Sameer from thalassery,kerala.
    Brand new to this team so as my Linea classic 1.4petrol.
    I took delivery of linea a day ago (04/08/2016).
    I need clarification regarding the idle rpm .
    When I started the engine today in the morning ,saw the rpm raising to 1300 & fluctuating between 1200-1300 for good 2 minutes ,After that saw it coming down to 800-900 rpm steady.
    I did not drive the car & kept her parked in the garage itself .
    Again in the noon I started the engine & noticed the same issue .
    Is there any cause to worry about ?
    I have reported the issue to the dealer & will be taking the car tomorrow to them.
    Meanwhile thought of sharing this observation with you guys .

    Thank you
    Cheers,
    Sameer

    Hello Sameer,

    This is normal behavior on cold starts, the engine runs at a slightly higher rpm initially and then settles down.

    cheers,
