Engine startup


Recommended Posts

My 1986 Esprit turbo has been running fine. Recently on cold starts the engine races to 3000RPM for about 5 minutes then returns to about 900RPM. The weather has not been very cold and the car is kept in a non heated garage. Is this normal, it seems excessive and it did not do this during the summer months
