What is the normal IDLE RPM for 2005 Mazda Tribute 6 cyl 2wd?

Asked by Mar 31, 2015 at 10:48 PM about the 2005 Mazda Tribute s

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Recently the steering wheel began vibrating while stopped and the idle sounds much more
loud as well. It is at 600-1000 RPM stopped. Is this normal? If so, what else could be
causing the louder sound and vibrations?

Check to see if you have any engine light codes. Around 700 to 900 RPM is acceptable at stopped, depending on engine temperature. The 600 level is kind of low. You may also have a leak in one of the air lines. This will cause the engine to not properly idle.

The check engine light is not on. Thanks for replying!
