Cold Idle

Happy Turkey Day Everybody....I noticed the last couple days my truck when it goes to raise the rpm's to 1000 it only gets to about 800 and sometimes 750....Im talking about the high idle that they all do from factory....My high idle switch brings it up to 1100 and it stays there most of the time but may drop to 1050 or 1000 sometimes...Anybody else have this problem...Any Ideas What It Could Be?

Sold it for the Vette Now Want Another!

Your hi idle switch shouldn't vary much if any at all... The factory "idle up" in cold weather will vary somewhat depending on the outside temp. Sometimes mine raises to 1000, other times only 8 or 900.
