Hi There, It sounds like your truck is idling at the correct RPM. Most vehicles should idle at approximately between 750-800 RPM’s. In some cases, if the RPM’s fluctuate or idle abnormally high or low, this may be an indication of a dirty or faulty idle air control valve, however yours seems to be correct. If you need further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us as we are always here to help.
