Hi there ! .I have a 1.4 civic sport year 2000 and when the engine revs drop to tickover they drop to about 500 rpm,then raise to about 1000 rpm and eventually it steadies out at about 800 rpm !!.I have checked the idle control valve which seems to be ok !!.Has anybody any suggestions as to what fault may be causing this to happen.Many thanks...Simon

Mine does this randomly

Although it only happens on cold days...... I have a feeling in my cases its old age and what electrical things i have on.
If i start my car with nothing b ut the ignition (i.e. no radio amp fans heaters crap like that) it goes to 1500!!!!

but this is randomly also depending on which way my car faces (i live on hill) same thing applies

Does "tickover" in the UK mean engine idle speed?
