Default 2006 GV Funky Idling

After getting off the highway after a 4-hour roundtrip drive. I noticed my 2006 Premium GV idling when stopped in an inconsistent manner. The RPMs dont move up or down more than 100rpms but it is noticeable when you listen to the engine idle. It still starts right up most times, but since this occurred, it has had some trouble starting at running temperatures.

Anyone experienced this before? Thanks

"Funky Idling" .. sounds like a good name for a 70's R&B band

What engine model do you have? Is it the 2.7l V6? If you have an OBD compliant version a good thing to do would be to check for any diagnostic fault codes.

Yes, it is the 2.7L. My first reaction was maybe an oxygen sensor but I'm not sure. And I am not sure if I have an OBD compliant version. The check engine light did turn on though.

Yeah, if the check engine light came on, then there should be some diagnostic codes caught in the memory. Although there's a way to read the DTC codes from the car without a scan tool (if it's equipped with a diagnostic connector), it involves shorting a ground wire into the connector, so I'm not advocating that unless you're very keen.

Any auto service centre will have an OBD reader. I'd check with a few in your local area to see if anyone will do a free scan for you (only takes about a minute). At least that way you get some hints on what to look for. The cars are just so complex these days that anything else would be taking a stab in the dark I think.

My idling is less sporatic than what your previous post described. The vibrations i feel are very slight, almost unnoticeable, and the engine doesn't feel like it close to turning off. It sounds like I will have to take it somewhere.

Have you checked your oil levels? If low drain it, flush it and replace oil and filter.
