At an idle, what should my RPMs be at? 1989 V8 302 Mines currently around 600 RPMs when I come to an stop sign. Making sure this is normal and not too low because my RPMs used to run a little higher but I replaced some solenoids, valves, cleaned EGR, and replaced couple hoses and it runs smoother and quiter. Sometimes you think it’s dead at a stop it’s so smooth haha

My 78 is between 500-800. RPM's should be as low as possible without chocking out or stalling the engine for fuel efficiency

If it's happy at those RPMs, there's nothing wrong with it.
