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...

My VR6 only warms up at 1k (or 10 because of German cars lol) and then drops down to maybe 5-6k for idle... Obviosuly it's not the same 2.0 like you, maybe it wamrs up higher rpms because it's a 4-cyl? My ol' 86 Corolla SR-5 warms up quite high in the rpms too, sometime close to 3k rpms.... But then again, it's carbuerated....
