[DML] Re: Working on that warmup issue..



Your issue needs to be checked methodically. I am afraid the jumping 
around will lead to guessing.

The hose disconnect you did should have created a vacuum leak in the 
intake manifold idle motor plumbing. It sounds like the hole in the 
bottom of the intake manifold feeding the idle motor may be stopped 
up.

But - guessing along here, I would say your symptoms also describe a 
problem in the fuel pressure regulator or the vacuum lines and 
accessories attached there to.
