Need Some Advice on Jeeps

I have some questions -

1. My '89 Jeep Comanche 4x4 Truck idles at 1,000 rpm. What is normal ?
Is the idle controlled by the computer or that screw on the throttle block ?
I have messed with the screw, but the idle stays at 1,000 rpm !
Straight six - wouldn't EVER have anything else !

2. Are all Jeep Floor Stick Shifts hard to get into second gear when cold ?
Had a '95 Cherokee with a floor 5 speed stick and it did the same thing......
When good and warm, shifts into 2nd nicely.

3. My '89 Jeep Comanche 4x4 Truck gets 16 mpg - used 4x4 a lot.
What is normal. My '95 Cherokee got 22 mpg - straight six.

4. Where the Heck is everybody - hardly any replies on this forum.....
