it could be the coolant temp unit. it senses the engine temp and adjust the throttle occordingly so the engine can easly worm up to operating temp. when i first start my 1990 tracker up, it will idle at around 2,000 rpm until it warms up then it will idle at around 700 rpms.

automatic idle switch.Nah. Supprised that your engine hasn't 'gernaded'! Something's mechanically sticking in WOT (wide open thottle) when you first start up; like the throttle plate/accellerator cable???

High revving of engine 5000 - 6000 rpms until it warms up on a 2000 VW New Beetle?

If your doing it on purpose then DON'T.If the engine is doing it via the computer you need to take it into the shop and have them look at it. There seems to be a bad sensor telling the computer wrong information. Running at a high rpm when the motor is cold and with no load is not good for it.

What is the cause of a 89 Volvo starting and running but if you turn it off it will not start again until you wait a few hours?

I suggest that the cause may be related to the starter. Because, if the starter is staying engaged with the ring gear on the flwheel after you start the engine it will cause the starter to overheat, thus preventing the starters operation until it cools.

What is hp rating on 02 suzuki xl7?

The 2002 is the same engine as my 2001, and it was 175 HP. I now have a 2006 and it has a different exhaust and intake manifold tuning and now has 180 HP. It is a small, high-revving, low-torque engine and doesn't make any useful power until you rev it to around 3000-3500 RPM, which is why the engine RPM is so high on the highway, and why it uses more fuel compared to some other small SUVs.

What is governor and flywheel in engine?

The flywheel stores inertia in it's rim and allows the power stroke of the engine to be smoothed out over the entire rotary cycle. This brings the piston back up the cylinder for the next power stroke. The governor is a negative feedback system that controls the speed of the engine to stop it over revving. Watts governor has two spinning pivoted steel balls that fly apart as the speed increases. The faster the engine revs the more the flying balls close the steam pipe from the boiler. This slows the engine until the falling balls reopen the pipe etc.
