comment What causes an engine idle to increase briefly?
Nope, that question is more about why a cold engine has to run faster than a warm one.

comment Why does an engine's idle RPMs take time to settle from a cold start?
Doesn't anyone remember the choke!? It's not even like they went away (thinking of lawn care machines).

comment Burning smell when getting out of the car
Also consider that the oil doesn't all burn up immediately. There could be some leftover oil on some components that is causing the smell, so look as best as you can, but maybe it just needs time.

comment Is it okay to replace one tire (of four matched tires) with a completely different model of tire?
You match per axle so that the diameter of the tires match. Otherwise it's like walking around with one leg longer than the other.

comment Should I grease an axle when I replace it on my motorcycle
I agree, and as a rule of thumb. If you have something open enough to do routine maintenance (like grease things), do it. Things like grease costs pennies and will give you many more miles.

comment Tachometer doesnt show correct RPM sometimes
By analog I think he is referring to if there is a cable attached to the back of the gauge (middle of the dial) or does it just have wires (digital signal).

A friend is borrowing my Arduino currently, but after scanning the diagnostics page you posted I did a quick search and I think I'll try [this][cs.purdue.edu/homes/millerrv/Ryan_Miller/Projects/Entries/2010/… site out

comment Battery shorts when key is turned quickly
Sounds most probable. I'll give it a go when the truck is back in town.

But, that doesn't explain why it shorts only when the key is turned fast.
