I have a 1989 Dodge ram 250 van that I bought two weeks ago with a bad power steering pump. (Not the problem.) I went to pick up the pump and when I re-started the van it had an extremely high idle. I pulled the engine cover off and noticed that the sellenoid (sp?) Makes a kind of buzzing noise when the ignition is turned on and goes up but does not go down as the engine warms up, thus making the idle higher and higher. I don't have a manual for her yet, and would greatly appreciate any feed-back on this problem before I tear into it, I'm thinking either a bad sellenoid or perhaps a temperature sensor. Thanks!
