2008 suzuki grand vitara idles at 3500 rpm's

Asked by Jan 11, 2015 at 08:53 PM about the 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently bought a 2008 suzuki grand vitara and it idles at 3500 rpm's. Every car I have
owned idles around 1000 rpm. I don't know much about suzuki's and was wondering if this
high idle is normal or if it's something to worry about? If it isn't normal what are some
causes and how would I go about fixing the issue?

Sounds like a stuck IAC (Idle Air Control) valve or a vacuum leak. HTH. -Jim

Yes, basically look for damaged, or disconnected vacuum hoses. As for the IAC it's mounted on the throttle body. Usually secured by 2 bolts. HTH. -Jim
