Help Please

Hi
I have a 7.3 2002 F350 Diesal Dually. live in NY and it's cold, just bought truck with 118,000 mi.

when its at idle at .5 for a few minutes it jumps up to 1.2, and won't lower until I tap the brake. Then after a minute it jumps right back up again.
Is this normal?

I read on your site that if I put it nuetruel with the E brake on, the idle says at .5 all he time, it works just like you said thanks.

Respectfully,

Sounds like a high idle. Mine does that.

Respectfully,
It's working as designed. Do some reading here:

Winter Operation, Hard Starting, Hissing Sound Etc...

Thanks for Helping.

Should the high idle lower back down on its own at some point. Fluxuate?
respectfully

Thanks.

my idle will not lower on its own in park unless i tap the brake. Then after a minute is goes high idle again.
I will admit, the 7.3 is a great motor.

Thank You for the feed back.

One more question please.......Is it okay to idle for long amounts of time? I ask because I've been napping/sleeping in my truck while my son snow boards.
I've read alot of different opinions.
Thanks All
