Re: Any ideas about an eb not idling well on gas?

It could be a number of things like;

- Vacuum leak (inlet side)
- Clogged air filter
- fouled spark plugs or incorrect heat range spark plugs
- Old/Damaged spark plug Leads

you should check these firstly before tampering with the gas settings

To check for a Vacuum leak use a squirt bottle filled with soapy water and spray around all seals, If there is a leak the soapy water will be sucked in
(Engine needs to be degreased for this)

If this does not solve your issues PM me

Hi.
Yeah, we checked the plugs and leads, turns out it was a hole in the air box.
Thanks heaps for the advice though :)
