Re: [DML] High idle

I unplugged the idle motor as videobob mentioned, and the car dropped from 1800-2000 
rpms to 1200-1400. The idle motor does not make a whirring sound when the key is in 
the 'on' position with the engine off. Does this prove that the idle motor is the cause of my 
problems, or could it be something electrical not powering the motor properly?
