I cut a broom handle to fit between the seat and accelerator. When I fix it in there, the engine idles about 1500. In the mornings I start the truck and put my stick there and go back inside for a couple of minutes.
Is 1500 too high when it's cold? I know it needs to idle higher but what is "too high"? After all, that is the purpose of idling it to get it warm, so you don't stress the motor too much driving it cold.
Another question, is the mileage worse when the engine is cold? During the week it never gets to full temp before it's shut down.
