Zh stalling

Yo hey I just bought a 76 Zh Marquis for $700. Go figure i took it to get a rego check done on it and they pulled it up for everything from a pitman arm to a faulty passenger window. Took it somewhere else and they passed it cept for some rust in the boot which has now been fixed. Awesome car, I love it runs smooth i've started to notice though that once you've been on the road for a while that it doesn't like idling. Seems to want to stall at low speed and at traffic lights. Does it just need a turn up ? Just had a new alternator and battery put it ... some help would be awesome. Thanks

Re: Zh stalling

Sounds like the idle might be set too low. A decent tuneup should correct the stalling, and probably give better fuel economy.

Re: Zh stalling

Shouldn't this be in the Cleveland section?

Anyway, if it stalls on idle but runs fine otherwise (when in motion), then you'll need to adjust the idels crew, yes. Best way to find it?

1. Remove the air cleaner.
2. Find the throttle cable.
3. Find the plates that move about when the throttle cable is depressed.
4. Find the screw that stops the plates moving. Turn it a little (no more than half a turn first), making sure that you're going the right way - the plates should move as if the throttle is being depressed.
5. Start her up, see what happens.
