[DML] Re: Start-up RPM's

A brief run-up rpm at start is a normal action - but, staying high 
for 15 seconds is not. A full 15 seconds? Could be the idle motor is 
sticking or connections in the idle speed circut may need cleaned. 
Also, the throttle plates may be open slightly causing a delay in 
the idle speed motor action or, the not-to-be-used idle adjustment 
screw may be open.
