What should a 95 t-bird with a 4.6 Idle at in Park/Neutral and Drive. Mine is idling at 900-1000 in Park/Neutral and 400-600 in gear is that normal.

Your tach isn't quite reading correctly. The engine can't maintain idle at 300-400 rpm without stalling. It's most likely around 600-700 in gear. But don't worry. These tachs aren't known for their accuracy.

ahhh... well all i know is 700-800 idle, then it drops down a bar or 2 in gear. (digital) is it's probably not the best thing. ha ha ha
