Can someone please help me and tell me what should the rpm's be at idle?
Mine are @ 1200.
It just started doing this today after I got a Gel cell battery.
Can this be the cause?
Any help will be apreatiated.

On my 93 SL it idles at 650-700. When I first start it idles around 1200. The it drops down. Try letting it run a for a bit incase something needs to reset.

like darktrail said, rpm at idle should settle to ~700 after starting up, at start it will idle ~1200. things that could change this are adjusting your idle control screw or lightening the mass on your crankshaft (i.e. udp or flywheel). hope this helps, safe travels.

In cold weather my car revs up to 2000 and then it works its way down to 1000, then after driving for a short while it gets down to 500 (without AC on, with AC on its more like 700-900)
