As the vehicle sits idling the driveshaft is not rotating.
Rough idling is whenever the vehicle's motor "misses" or does not fire causing an imbalance and a loss of rotation reducing the motor's power and causing excessive shaking.

the only thing i can think of is a crack in the intake manifold. my cavalier's manifold cracked and it was idling at like 2500RPM as opposed to the normal 1000-1500, also i had trouble with my brakes and misc other problems because of the crack. if it is just idling too high and there are no other problems i would guess that it is just compensating for the cold. if there are other little issues, i would look into having your intake manifold checked out. gotta take care of your baby because cavaliers are such great cars...... :p
a dirty air filter or a dirty fuel filter will cause a diesel to smoke
Mechanical Energy, because of the movement of the car. however, when idling, there is potential energy.
My guess would be to look at the motor mounts to see if they are loose or broken.
Cracked Fly Wheel
This fluctuation is caused by common use. The temperature will be higher when the vehicle is idling because there is no air moving over the engine like it does when the car is in motion.
My 1986 Honda Accord Dx just started idling rough and dieing at turns and stops it is a carburated 2.0 witha maunal transmission
you most likely have a horrible fuel sensory causing your car to be bad at idling. also you may hvae reved your engine to hard and that is causing it to idle.
Some jurisdictions have ordnances against idling ANY vehicle for longer than certain set periods of time. However they are ORDNANCES and not criminal offenses in the generally accepted sense of the word.
my idling on my 2001 ford focus is not idling correct, tried to adjust idling but there is no screw or way to adjust why?
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem Possibly a bad ignition coil
If you have replaced plugs and wire most likely one of your coil pack usually run about $50
Perhaps clutch throw-out bearing?
It is a faulty sticking injector, or LAMBDA Sensor, Or faulty ECU
cause if its idling at zero rpm the motor is off ...
If your vehicle is idling high to low when its not moving, chances are you have an issue with the transmission. It may need to be replaced fully or simply fixed.
Car engines are demanding and require proper care to be taken. Failure to do so can result in problems with fuel, ignition, emissions, and other various systems. A vehicle is said to be idling when it has sufficient power to work the steering or other components but not enough to move the vehicle itself.
I dont think that your car should be idling that high. I would investigate your IACV (Idle Air Control Valve) in your car to see if may be dirty that might help to get rpms down abit. If that doesnt work then you should check out honda-tech.com for more options. Hope that helps abit.
The most common reason for the oil pressure light to come on when your vehicle is idling, is low oil. Check your engine oil and make sure the oil is up to the full mark on the dipstick.
You can add engine wear but the reading on the odometer will not change since the sensor for the odometer is located at the output end of the transmission or transaxle, and therefore only gives a reading when the vehicle is moving (or when the wheels are spinning, if you are on ice or up on a hoist). So, no, you will not add mileage by idling.
Because even idling engines use fuel.
