> In my attempt to diagnose the problem with the load reduction relay I
> pretty much pushed, pulled and plugged back in every relay & fuse under
> dash. The only thing I did under the hood was disconnect the battery (the
> battery was disconnected for about 3 days).
> Once warm if you rev the motor it will drop to 400 come up to 500 and
> during the next 20 seconds will climb to just under 800 and stay there. If
> are coming down a freeway off ramp and just leave it in 5th until it's
> to push in the clutch at the stop sign, the motor will die.
