My car idle when start up and also during normal temperature in P rpm around 850 - 1000. After gear in R or D position, rpm drop until 550-750rpm. May I know what might the problem is?I've try to clean the throttle body and also check the vacuum leak. The engine can start up easily in cool condition but hard to start up in hot condition. Please advice. Thanks

Could be a coolant temp sensor out of range, this will git the starting problems you mentioned. Being out of range will not set a code, just screw up the hot & cold mixture settings.

No, it's just a screw in sensor, you can test them, by checking the resistance against temp. There will be a graph to check against, I do not have it, it will be something you can get from a dealer.

No adjustable manually, it is in the coolant, with cold coolant the resistance of the sensor is such it sends a signal to the ECU to go rich, as the coolant heats up the resistance through the sensor changes and this sends the base mixture lean for normal running, in conjunction with other sensors that is, but the coolant temp sensor is the main sensor for cold start and base lean mixtures.

Not normally, this is more for the hot /cold stat problem, I feel that you need to get this sorted first and move on to the next problem, there may be some input from this sensor that can affect the other problem, but primary the starting problem.

Yes.I also feel this is the primary problem.I've looking to solve this problem for quite long time already. Hopefully CTS will be the reason for it. But it is quite hard for me to get such spare for the car in my area.

Hi,

I've change the CTS but still having hard start up problem during hot condition. But the car is much more idle after change. Is it normal there is only a little water coming out from the place of CTS after I unscrew it out?Any idea?Thanks
