1990 seems a bit late for CFI? You sure??
The CFI's used an "Idle Tracking Motor". One common failure was the "nose switch" in
the tracking motor asy. that sensed when the throttle was closed. I don't remember the
symptoms, but if the nose switch was bad it caused an bad idle concern. The motors
used to fail on a regular basis also. I remember a few CFI cars with shorted?(full
hot) coolant temp sensors that mimiced tracking motor concerns. (No or low idle until
the CTS was unplugged).
