[DML] Re: Idle Problems

Check the throttle cable to make sure it is fully inserted into the
ferrule by the throttle spool. Sometimes when working in that area you
pull on the cable and it does not go back in all the way by itself.
Make sure the throttle arm is returning all the way to the idle
position and tripping the micro switch. You could also have play or
have to adjust the quadrant link. It is the bar that connects the
throttle spool to the throttle arm. On the quadrant link there are 2
adjustable ball ends, miniature versions of the ones on the door
struts. On one end one is left handed and the other one on the other
end is right handed. They are also retained by small versions of the
wire clip so do not try to force them off without removing the clip!
By unlocking the ball ends (loosening the locknuts) you can adjust the
length of the quadrant link without removing the ball ends.

as I can't seem to solve an idle problem I am having.  Here's the
background:I recently replaced the butterfly assembly in the air
induction and everything seemed to go back together quite nicely. 
Upon starting the car I found that the idle had jumped up to 3000 RPM
so I began to systematically check the usual suspects.
