do you know if your car is running rich ?
is the temperature gauge higher than usual ?
does it ping ?
try a compression test, maybe a carbon buildup, and check the injectors, make sure they arnt leaking fuel into the engine.

Re: EAs ''running when off!''?!?

he he, chances are that it's your Idle Speed Controller servo. it's a little motor/magnet thingy that increases idle speed to stop the engine stalling. if it gets gummed up then it can screw with all sorts of things. I'm getting this a bit at the moment. it needs cleaning, by the sounds of it.

I had the same problem, Check if any of the air ducts are loose.

re

It sounds like the timing on your motor is out. I would probably check that first. Also maybe clean your plugs.

running on

if its CFI your injectors might be leaking, and if its a really early motor make sure the timing isn't slowly retarding itself. early motors used a roll pin to key the cam sprocket (later ones used a roll pin) which on my old car had flattened out and retarded the timning by almost 8 degrees. fixing that stopped the running on and also gave it considerably more bottom end torque.

Re the roll pin.

Anyone have a diagram of this where it is located. I think you might have solved an issue i am currently having. I find by setting the timming to factory specs the car has no guts all comp tests etc show up ok. I find if i advance the timming the car hammers. Any ideas. I was even thinking of advancing the cam by one tooth to see if it makes a difference then retard the base timming to see if it retains the power. Hope this makes sense.
