[DML] Re: Idle Speed Motor / Cooling

Also- sometimes the throttle plates or throttle plate shaft wears so
that it allows air to keep flowing even though the plates are closed.
This was my case, if you take off the whole assembly and hold it up to
the light you will see if there is wear by the amount of light that
comes through. It is normal for there to be a very slight amount of
space between the plates and the body wall. -----Dani B. #5003
