Default Camry revs its head off

I've just bought a 2005 Camry Altise V6 and have a question about its
performance when cold. It revs at over 2000 when cold but settles down to
800 when it warms up. Is this normal for this model ?

Appreciate some advice.

Gordon

Yes, my 2000 Camry LE 4 Cyl., when cold always revs high. Once warm,
it settles back down.

No its not normal for all those that said theirs do it also, When
cold, oil is thick and doesnt get to the top end of the motor quickly,
at very high rpm the oil can be thick enough to open the oil filter
bypass valve giving you dirty oil to the motor. Below zero is when
this is a big issue as oils get thicker as it gets colder. Oil
starvation occurs at extreme cold, it has been stated near 40-50% of
all engine wear can occur just on cold startups, even the overdrive in
my model wont engauge until the motor is near 110f, and thats a
factory design. Mine starts at near 9-1100 rpm and goes quickly to
6-700. Get it fixed, in summer you wont kill it but near zero and
below you really hurt the motor. This is why I use synthetics, they
pour at lower temps, do a google on oil starvation at startup in cold
temps.

2000 rpm would be like starting you car and immediatly drining on the
highway, you just never do that when its cold out, right. its very bad
for the motor, I wont even reach those rpms when its warm out, the
motor has to warm up first.

I have a 2002 Camry-4 and it NEVER goes that high on cold start up
even in the winter.
It MAY? go as high as 1100 rpm at cold start up but NO higher .
and settles down to normal 700-800 after a mile or so.

I think there may be a fault in your computer or it needs to be
reprogrammed.

Maybe the idle air control, this morning I was 800 cold a few minutes
later 600 rpm, 2000 is stupid nuts.Whenever I see some idiot who has
the habit of reving his cold motor to 2-3000 at -10f in the AM they
never have that car for much longer, and I dont wonder why its been
junked.

Default Re: Camry revs its head off

I have always found that on cold starts, my car always revs high on
its own. Not at 4000 or 5000 RPM, but probably 1800 if not more, but
never more than 2000. I misread the initial post. I thought he said at
2000 RPM, but only now am I noticing that the car is revving more than
2000. Sorry for the misleading post.
