1986.5 SE-V6 High Idles
First off I wanted to say great forum, I have been wandering around here for a while finding out stuff about these trucks.
My truck is a 1986.5 SE-V6 5 speed with every option that I think they had back then. I bought this truck a little while ago, but didn't notice the idle when I bought it because I think it was already warmed up. The truck starts and idles at around 2000 RPM's (which I think is high). It will do this for a while, and when you put it in gear the revs will drop, but you can feel it pulling the truck along when you let off the gas. I haven't left it sitting there just high idling long enough to see how long it stays like this, but I know it has been longer than 5 minutes. Once I have had it out on the road for a while the idle will drop back down to about 800 as normal. Is there a high idle adjustment, or is there something else that it might be? I am mechanically inclined, but don't have a manual for this truck yet. (Take that to mean that I have tools and don't mind working on stuff, but I am not close to being a mechanic.)
Second question: I have started hearing a whining noise when the clutch pedal is pressed down and I am now wondering what that is too. I hope I didn't buy a lemon, because I was told the clutch was replaced just recently.
Third question: I know the box under passenger seat is the diagnostics unit, but what is the box under the drivers seat? I have heard it is another amp for the radio, but haven't really looked at it yet. My truck already had one amp below and behind the stereo. Is there really 2 amps on this truck?
I know, I know, lots of questions from a newbie, but Thanks for any help in advance,
