Welcome. That's a good idea to do that. I usually wait longer than that, maybe a minute or two if not until the revs get to normal.freckles said:Hi, I'm new here. I just picked up my 2002 G20 Sport, 5-speed on Friday. I noticed the high RPMs on startup (1500) and was going to mention it to the dealer, but it sounds pretty normal. The owner's manual says to let the car "warm up" for 30 seconds before putting it in gear. I've been doing this, especially since it's during the break-in.
