Is my idle too low?..

Just wondering if anybody thinks my idle is lower than normal

Please let me know what you think and where your car idles when engine is at operating temperature

Is your AC on?

If not, then it's too low.

Ac on 650rpm
Ac off 500rpm (which is the small white line in your pic)

AC is off. There are no codes or ses light why could it be that low? It seems to only idle that low when warm

That's normal for when the A/C is off. Turning the A/C on will boost it to around 650. Unless your engine is idling rough or anything else unusual, this shouldn't be a problem.

Your pic is at 500 whixh is normal. Mine idles at a rock solid 500 on the gauge even though the hand scanners shows its actually closer to 580 in reality.
