i take it you meant 5/30 oil...otherwise you have the wrong oil:)

 

idle should be much more steady than that..around 900 give or take 25...could be the first clue...can indicate a problem with idle control/air mass/fuelpressure

 

maybe worth having the idle control removed and thoroughly cleaned, plus have a close look for any vacuum leaks on breather system/inlet manifold and pipework

 

has the ecu been checked for any codes

could well be CTS,  especially if the CO reading is in the upper range of tolerence...one of the reasons the actual readout could help.

 

tbh...things like stat may be worth changing anyway if not done recently, along with a flush and fresh coolant in order to just eliminate it.

 

this is one of those problems that will be a simple fix, but a bugger to find..

 

if idle speed is the only noticable 'problem' then will pay to focus on that first...the throttle position sensor is another possible that will cause idle problems/high HC

no need for hit and hope, most of the sensors are easy to test to eliminate/condemn...be happy to give details if and when necessary

to stooge 75, Haven't figured out what the fault is yet, but have managed to borrow a startester to see if the car's diagnostic can tell me whats up. Someone else (a ford bod), thinks it might be one of the injectors working overtime
