Look for a vacuum leak. It may be on the throttle body or it may be associated with the EGR valve assembly. Sometimes you can spray a small amount of starting fluid at a suspected vacuum leak and if there is a leak at that point, the engine will suddenly start to sound different while it burns off the starting fluid. For a vehicle to have a pulsating idle from approx. 800 rpm to 3000 rpm approx. the issue is not with vacuum but with the TPS ( throttle positioning sensor).

Drift speed in a conductor that carries current?

The Drift Speed is less than the average speed of the electron between two collisions. Electrons move relatively slowly along a wire but very quickly between collisions. The electric field (EMF) that causes the motion moves at the speed of light.

What is the normal idle speed for a ford probe gt you have mine set at 1500 rpms is this normal?

The idle speed depends on the year model. The GTs from 1993 to 1995 should have idles speed between 650 and 800rpm. I believe the 1996 and 1997 models had a slightly different idle speed, but either way 1500 sounds too much. You can adjust idle speed on your car of course.

When light rays enter a new medium at an angle what does the change in speed cause the rays to do?

The change in speed causes the light to bend. If it is travelling from an optically dencer to an optically rarer medium the ray will bend away from the normal. But if it is travelling from an optically rarer to an optically denser medium then it will bend towards the normal.
