Default Idle?

hey everyone, i have a 3L v6 ranger and when i start it the idle is about 1500-1800 and after a min of idleing it goes to about 1000. this is when it is in park and when i go into drive or reverse it goes to about 1100 at cold and 900 when driving for a min. i know it might do this when it is cold out but right now it is about 80 degress and just does it. what should the idle be or is it fine were it is at. what should i do about it

Has it always been in this range or has it increased recently?

I have only had the truck for about a month and it hasn't been registered so it hasn't been drivein. I'm not 16 yet so I don't have my lisence so that's why it's not regisered it. I'm pretty sure whehn we got it I had the high idle. Unless this isn't high idle.

my 4.0 idles at about 1100 for a min when in park and cold, then once its warm it drops down to about 700. so im guessing 900 is prolly normal? try running some seafom through it and see if it drops down any

Normal unless the idle stays high after it gets to operating temp.
