[DML] Re: Engine vacuum problems?

Check a couple of more things. Make sure the air sensor plate is
centered and not touching the sides of the venturi. Check the rest
position that it is not too high or too low. If the air filter is old
or dirty replace it. Make sure the Frequency valve is buzzing and does
not cut in and out. It should buzz steadily. Check the engine vacuum.
It should be up around 18". If you have leaks you will never get the
mixture right. Be certain the air tube for the idle motor is properly
inserted and the "O" ring is sealing properly in the mixture unit. My
guess is your are set up too rich to compensate for a dead Lanbda
and/or vacuum leaks.
