Hey...I know this isnt about a ford but I thought you guys might be able to help anyway...
My corolla (1988 Corolla CS AE82) is doing some weird stuff at idle.....it will start to idle then drop out, like almost die then start to idle fine again...it just keeps doing this...kinda sounds like it has a lump cam...lol....anyway, I thought it might be the idle screw first....tried that and it worked but I had to have the car idling really high so I turned it back down....I then went to the fuel filter and replaced it....still nothing.....I have cleaned out the carby also by getting it to back fire a couple of times...(a trick my mates dad showed me...always worked for his old XD).....but its still doing it....so...before I take into a shop I just wanna see if there is anything I have missed....
The engine is a 1600 4-cyl carby....and its in good nick....car drives fine once going...and there isnt any smoke....
It's a 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a packet of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it.
