Correct Idle speed?

Anyone know the idle speed for a '98 Taurus SE V6 3.0L? I just bought one and it seems to idle about 900 rpm according to the dash tach. I haven't digitally tached it yet but it feels like the idles are high so I suspect the tach isn't too far off.

Re: Correct Idle speed?

That is the correct idle speed. I have a 98 SHO and it also idle's at 900 rpm's.

I'd rather be judged by twelve then carried by six
