    When my truck is idling, the motor is a little shakey and very annoying. The RPMs drop, the truck rattles real quick, then the RPMs go up a little (this process happens over and over). What's going on here? Can I increase the RPMs that my truck idles at?

    I don't think you can change the idle. This process has happened to my truck for several years. Does it happen when the truck is in drive and the brake is held?

    that sounds exactly like mine. When I'm at a stop light I'm afraid the engine is going to stall. Let me know if FI cleaner helps
