Idle speed 2006 3.0 Ltaurus

Now that I have cleaned everyting (IAC,MAF, throttle body), the car seems to be running smooth. I'm wondering about idle speed because it has dropped down to about 750. Is that OK or too slow? How does one go about adjusting it?

Hello and good day Six:

My 2000 Idles at about 800 to 850 rpms when warm. 1000 to 1100 rpms cold.

I would say you are in the range...it doesn't seem to stall out after running for a while does it??

Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6

I haven't driven it that much. Never noticed anything unusual this morning when I drove down to the local coffee shop. RPM seems to stay steady but 750 sounds low compared to older models I have owned which usually ran 850 to 950.

One of the questions I asked was: can idle RPM be adjusted? I would like it to be higher.

The idle is controlld by the PCM and not adjustable. 750 is very perfect.
