Still Got Problems
This was the original thread I posted last week….
Hi,The car that I have is a 1991 ford falcon EB auto sedan and this is the first car with an onboard computer that I have owned and I have some knowledge how to repair cars.Bought this car 4 weeks ago.The problem that I have is that the car has a tendency to keep on running on,by this I mean that that it feels like the chock is stuck and the engine is running too cold.i went to a ford dealer to get a genuine water thermostat for normal running temperature and asked him about this wired sensor that sits under the carby with wires coming from it.i said that if I push the pin down (looks like some type of plunger)on it the high idle will drop down to normal.The engine doesn’t drop revs until the car stops moving.The dealer said that this is an adjustment to do with running at 7 or 9 volts and is quite easy to adjust at the carby cam adjustment.could some one explain this adjustment procedure for me.i do not have any meters to take any readings for this.maybe trial and error.
This is the reply that I got in the forum….
Yep, It's the Idle Speed Control Motor.
Drop me a PM with your email addy and I'll send you a scan from the workshop manual.
Followed the step by step instructions from the manual.
Still the motor is doing the same thing.Any ideas what is going on !!!!!
When the car is driven to any place it runs on high revs.When turned off for say 30 mins, then started to drive back it runs as a normal car should.!!
