    I have a '97 2.7L 4x4 5 speed.

    My idle is low when the engine reaches operating temps...

    Is this adjustable?

    I've noticed mine dips real low occasionally and makes the truck shudder like when it's in too high of a gear. Sea foam will make your truck idle and generally run smoother. I haven't personally done it, but i am planning to do it before my next oil change. I suggest doing it if your close to due for an oil change, but if not, wait till you are. The sea foam will knock crap loose and you don't want it floating around your engine for very long.
