[DML] Re: idle fluctuations



What do I do if my throttle arm isn't returning all the way? The spring is already on the second setting. I tried lubing the linkage... still the throttle will stick at about 1100-1400 rpm's after the car has been driven. I can revv the engine and it will get enough momentum to make the throttle arm return all the way. What should I do? Is a new throttle spool spring an option? Obviously I need more tension.

A couple of quick things to check:
a vacuum hose may have fallen off or developed a leak
The plug for the mixture screw is missing
bad ignition wires
sticking throttle cable not allowing the idle micro to "set"
Dirty, fouled spark plug
leaking cold start valve
