It is the 4.5. I have a new throttle position sensor to install if needed. A pain.
Expert:  roybelding replied 10 months ago.
ok, when you start it the shaft should push out and then retract to the low idle. does the motor do this??? also, when you turn off the engine, the motor should extend the shaft all the way out Roy
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It works as advertised. The car stays at high idol in neutral or drive when stopping. 1300 rpm. When stopped it goes to normal. Seems the idol is being controlled by the speed of the car rather than the throttle position

as advertised??? please explain??? does it work the way I asked???

I am sorry, I need specific answers to my questions if I am to help. you keep giving me general answers which are not answering my questions. I cannot continue unless you answer my questions.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It is a new solenoid. I did not trust the old one. I did adjust the idol with the stop screw first before I hooked up the solenoid
Expert:  roybelding replied 10 months ago.
ok, it can be new but I need to verify the action is correct. you see, I still dont have an answer to keep helping you. Roy

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Well never did get an answer. I seem to have annoyed Roy.
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 10 months ago.
I assume that you have not resolved the issue?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No. Its ok, I think this was a mistake in the first place . Also did not expect anyone to be working Saturday night. Consider this transaction done. You have a good night.
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 10 months ago.
