    if it's an electric MM then engine RPM won't make any difference....

    he might be trying to boost alternator output with the higher idle. and that still doesn't do a whole lot lol.

    check the pickup screen in the bottom of the pump housing. i would change the fluid also, make sure everything is nice and fresh and clean while you're in there with the screen apart.

    my curtis was going real slow from left to right,so slow as a matter of fact it was making my draining my battery and making my batter alarm go off, i drained the fluid, filled it back up ran it up,down left,right for about 5 minuts, then drained it again, and refilled it, it works like a champ now.
