[DML] Re: High Idle - test 1 results...

I have posted the previous question of the high idle here, at tamirs forum, and at dmc help, 
and now I have several different answers! I am hoping its not too serious of a problem to 

However, I decided to go with the easiest check first, per videobob, I checked the idle speed 
motor or idle regulator (not sure the correct name for this) and when the key is in the "on" 
position, I hear no whirring. I unplugged it and started the car, and the idle went from 
1800-2000 range, down to 1200-1400 range. I did not want to drive the car because I am 
not sure if running with that unplugged can cause any damage.

Now, is there a way to check if it is the motor that is seized and needs to be replaced, or if it 
is something from the computer causing the motor not to receive the needed power? Or does 
the fact that the idle dropped and I have no whirring an automatic sign of a bad idle speed 

Note...this car was stored for several years so the mention of something rusting or seizing in 
it is quite possible.
