Hemi startup RPM

What does your WK2 Hemi rev up to when you start your motor? Mine just recently started going to 1400 and slowly comes down to roughly 750 over a minute and a half. This happens each time I start it (whether cold or hot) and in warm weather. It didn't do it before. Any ideas why the change?

Re: Hemi startup RPM

I'll check my wife's tonight after work.

It's definitely a computer issue... it almost seems like the computer is sensing a flood/stall and is sending more air to the motor until it warms up. I could see this when it's really cold but not so much when it's warm.

Not sure what the RPM is but it does not do that. It starts and settles down right away.

Re: Hemi startup RPM

Mine does it from a cold start. I have had other vehicles in the past that do the same thing. Figured it was to warm the engine more quickly.
