I have a 97 Passat VR6. It used to idle around 1000 when I first got it. Now I can't get it to idle above 750. Is this normal? Also when I am driving and shift into neutral the headlights dim until I rev the engine. Any thoughts?
750 is about good, give or take an idea.
I agree with Izzo, somewhere around the 750 RPM mark. I remember when I first got my car I used to freak out thinking that my car was dying because the idle was below 1000 RPM. Is it a manual? I am pretty sure automatics idle at a higher RPM, so you may be used to that

I am used to my 2.0 MKIV. It held a steady idle at 1000 rpm. Now it is just a yard ornament since someone ran a red light and totaled it last month. I am using the passat for a daily driver now. Just trying to work the bugs out until I can get the Golf going again.
