Hey there! I'm Craig and I'm one of iFixit's word wizards. In other words, I write content for the iFixit blog and inform readers about repair-related happenings, as well as explain the wonderful world of fixing things.
I've been writing about technology in general for over ten years, starting out as a writer and columnist in college for the student newspaper, eventually becoming Web Editor and earning a spot as an Online Pacemaker Award finalist from the Associated Collegiate Press in 2011.
Before iFixit, I wrote for several other websites, including Lifehacker, Digital Trends, How-To Geek, and SlashGear. My love of tech and repair goes back much further, however, when I began tinkering with the family computer as a young and naive teenager.
I love getting my hands dirty with various projects around the house and in the garage, and I'm a strong advocate for the DIY movement. In other words, I don't call a guy when something breaks; I am the guy.
I'm also a motorcyclist, party game enthusiast, baseball fan, crazy cat dad, and proud introvert.

사용자에게 답변하기: Why does the rpms get high when changing gears?Based on your follow-up comments, this all sounds like normal RPM ranges. 2,000 RPMs right at startup is normal, just as long as it goes back down after a few seconds or so. (it may stay higher for longer when it’s really cold out). As for shifting into Drive, the RPMs will slightly go down because the engine connects to the transmission, and the resistance of the transmission fluid takes energy from the engine and lowers the idle speed slightly. Vice versa, when shifting into Park, the RPMs will go up temporarily because that resistance is no longer there. Your car’s computer will notice this and bring the idle RPMs back down to the normal 800-900 RPMs. That’s all a bit oversimplified, but I hope it makes sense. There doesn’t appear to be anything wrong based off the info you gave.
