I have a 97/ls V6 and lately the idle is acting kinda strange.When you first start it up it idles about 1300 and then as it warms up it'll drop down to about 500 and that's where it stays.It does'nt stall or anything but it never done that before.Could this be a sensor problem??Any help would be great...Thanks.

What are you talking about? Isn't that normal? When I start my car in morning it Idles at 1200-1300RPM and slowly goes down to 700RPM as it gets hot.

This is normal and designed to do this to warm up the car. The tacho metre and 2 marking betweeen 0 and 1, The first mark is 500 then 750 and 1000.

Your car is operating correctly.
