Title: Method of controlling idle of internal combustion engine

Abstract: A method of controlling idle of an internal combustion engine including a variable vibro-isolating supporting device for actualizing vibro-isolating characteristics corresponding to a variety of vibrations, comprises a step of increasing a frequency of idle vibrations by increasing the number of idling rotations of the internal combustion engine by a predetermined number of rotations under a suing environment where a desired vibro-isolating effect is not obtained by the variable vibro-isolating supporting device, thereby preventing the idle vibrations from being transmitted to a car body side of an automobile etc.
