Idles "low" but runs right? Maybe you got used to the engine working harder before because the old catalyc converters were clogged? :)

Define "really low". Normal would be about 500 to 750 RPMs. You can check the plug for the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. But they should not have been any where near that. Is your check engine light on? HTH. -Jim

Ok, since the check engine light is on have the computer scanned and post the trouble code(s) here. Most auto parts stores will scan your computer for free. Then we can tell what's going on. HTH. -Jim
