    Hi,

    I bought a Nissan Almera 1.5 SX 2006 about a week ago with 100,000 miles, manual.

    There are a few observations that I am concerned about as I haven't come across such behavior with any other cars that I have owned. I am wondering whether this is normal or something to look into further?
    1. After starting the engine and running it idle for 7 minutes at 82 Celsius engine coolant temp, 23.5% engine load the car idles at 1100rpm.
    2. Whilst idling, after 7 minutes (each condition checked individually) with everything turned off rpm at 1100:
    • Turning on low beam headlights adds up to 170rpm an increase to 1270rpm.
    • Turning on fog lights drops up to 50rpm a decrease to 1050rpm.
    • Turning on normal air fan adds up to 100rpm an increase to 1200rpm.
    • Turning on air conditioning initially shoots up to 1700rpm, once steady still adds up to 250rpm (overall) an increase to 1350rpm.
    Thanks.
