What’s the idle speed on a Chevy Silverado?
Although mine is a lot different than yours, I can tell you it will idle down to about 500 RPM when warm. However, if it’s been acting sluggish, you may need that checked out (or just spend more money on more HP ). Put in some better fuel (Shell or Mobil premium) and just DRIVE it. Very little extra cost to you and it cleans as you drive.

What should the RPM be on a Chevy Silverado?
Farside, we have the same trucks (roughly). At cold start, mine jumps to 1400-1500. It quickly drops down to 1,000. After it warms up, it is consistent at 500-600. So I think yours is pretty normal. If it is sluggish, I agree with using a Top Tier fuel, and a can of Sea Foam or Amsoil Performance Plus in the next tank.
