Re: Idle probs

is it just idle or does it run like shit when u put your foot down too sometimes... if its just idle then might need the idle turned up a bit if it happens while driving too (the car looses power every now and again) might just be the leads

Lovin the manual xr6!!!

Re: Idle probs

We need more info - when were the plugs, filter, timing, plug leads, etc. last done?
Does it just idle high, or low as well?

Re: Idle probs

So it revs up
OK well first I'd look over all the vacuum hoses, sounds like an intermittent vacuum leak ATM. Can you hear a whistle when it does it?
Another thing to try is to unplug the idle motor, and use the throttle screw to set the idle. Then drive it around with the motor unplugged and see if it still does it. That'll tell you if it's the motor or not, at least.
