Recently had head gasket replaced and the car idles at 1.5k?
Ok so the car idles at 1.5k and the rpms go and down slightly from the 1.5k . Also what’s concerning to me is that when I started driving it to get home from work the engine felt like it would jolt or like get stuck sorta. It is a manual so it could have just been the clutch engaging a lot harder but it would do that even when I didn’t shift. Any help would be great and I really appreciate it. The shop is closed for a few days and I’m wandering if there’s anything I can do or check myself. I don’t have a lot of money at the time do to paying all my bill for the month. So i can’t help but feel stressed out. The car is a 2000 civic and it’s the single overhead cam D16Y7 1.6L. Ok so quick summary as soon as I start the car rpms jump and then go back in forth after about 3 min they stop at 1.5k and it don’t drop from there. Car feels like it jolts as I drive it especially under 30 mpr.
