[DML] Re: Idle Seeking and Other Problems....


How warm is "completely warm?"

If I just started my car and drove, I also had power loss in the 
first minute or so. This was well before complete warm-up to the 1/4 
mark on the gauge. I did not have the racing/backfiring you 
describe.  Turned out my air filter was clogged.  The problem is 
virtually gone now that I replaced it. Sounds like yours might be 
something else.  More technical folks will have some thoughts and 
diagnostic approaches.  

I'm a novice, but I think some hunting is normal during the warm-up 
period.  I sometimes have a little hunt at idle even when warm, 
probably because I could use a new O2 sensor (how is yours?) or some 
minor  adjustments.  How dramatic are your RPM swings?

I believe there are notes in the tech section on how to test your O2 
sensor and general notes on idle problems (such as fast idle).  You 
might take a look.  

The message board "Search" function is also quite useful to find 
answers in old posts.  I believe there are detailed notes on 
optimizing your idle with the O2 sensor disconnected, then 
reconnected following adjustment, buried in old messages.

Good luck!
