Default problems, problems, and problems

i have a couple problems with my car that i cant figure out.
1. when i start my car my rpm's are under 1000 and my car sounds like it's going to die. after like 2 mins it just stays at 1000 at it sounds normal. Have no idea whats wrong.

2. when my car is on and im reving the engine i can pull the key out.

3. every few minutes or so the car makes a sound like its changing gears. It makes this sound even if its sitting in the drive way or when im driving. Could it be something rattling on another part like exhaust.

4. I can smell heavy fumes when the car is started and it just fills the air. like its a really heavy smell like it almost fills ur lungs.

5. I also noticed that there is a short tube from the bottom of my radiotor and i dont know were it leads too. its only like 4" long.

6. there is also another tube that is connted by the air filter just a section up dont know were this one goes eithier.

ur input is appreciated.

2. your key is prolly just worn out. i believe i have an original key and i can pull it out whenever i want whether the car is on or not.

3. do you have an electric radiator fan? if you do it might just be that turning on.

thats the only ideas i have. hope it helps at least a little bit

1. All my cars do that. So I would say nothing is really wrong there. - its just warming up I would guess.
2. I can do the same thing, I can even start the car without the key if I don't lock the the ignition, so I think you should be able to do that - (my brother 94 ranger 5sp is the same)

3. I dont think its the fan because it sounds like its coming from the rear end.

I also have the idle problem. But I know all my bolts are tight. Plus my check engine light is on. And my car does die. Its confusing!

i have the idle problem.. when i was delivering pizza the last few nights (yea thats right).. my car will start fine, idle fine, run fine.. but then after i make a run or two, my car is warm, i shut it off for 20 minutes, then start it, it idles about 500-600 rpm. going up and down, sputters and die, but if i get on the throttle when i start it, it will sputter, and then finally rev up, then i will rev it up to 3000rpm a couple times, then it will sit at about 900-1000rpm and will run fine.. any idea whats wrong with it? could it be the bolt like yours? could u post a pic of the bolt you tightened? thanks
