Your truck should have throttle body injection. Most of the electronic issues that will cause a high idle will turn on your check engine light. If it's on read the codes and check it accordingly. If it's not on then you most likely have a vaccum leak. The most common by far is a failed base gasket for the throttle body. Second is the hose for the PCV valve failing and splitting. You can check for these leaks by using some water in a spray bottle. Spray the water at the suspected leak while the engine is idling. If it's leaking you will hear the water getting sucked in or the engine note will change.

High idle( 1000-1200mpr)


the most probable cause for high idle is the idle air control because this sets idle on todays cars. you could have a vacuum leak, but remove and clean IAC first. to see if it goes to the proper rpms. good-luck !

I have a 1987 Susuki Samurai, 1.3 engine. Cold start is idles at 2000 rpm up to 2200 rpm. Is this normal? Its seems a little fast. How do you adjust the cold fast idle speed? Thanks, Randy


Yeah it sounds kinda high. There is no adj except for the idle screw on the throttle, the computer does the rest, if it has one. If not, then you can adjust it some how. If carbureted, check for 2 little screws in the front, and check the choke, If throttle body, then just the idle screw, the idle should be around 1000. Hope this helps.
