I have a 99.5 Jetta 2.0 and sometimes on occasion when i start her up the rpms go up to about 2-2.5k and then slowly get down to 1200 and stays there... anyone know what is the normal idling rpms for the 2.0 engine... and anyone know what could be wrong...

or probably cause its cold..

x2 generally your car will rev high until it starts to warm up
My subaru used to rev high like 2.5 3 and slowly go down as it warmed up...
yep my buddies kia does that
if ur temp gauge drops for no reason, i'd check the sensor/thermostat. Idling or driving, once it reaches NOT it should stay there.
