[DML] Re: Engine Dies at idle HELP!

Hi david

Yes with my car the engine will not idle.

runs for 10 seconds then chugs slower and slower then stalls

start again and it does the same. Gas pedal down makes it cough and 

have now bypassed the idle system and the car idles at 1500 rpm, 
hence  i am now checking through the idle wiring etc.
DMUK have checked my idle ecu and motor and they work Ok.
going to check the microswitch next.
have pulled the injectors and they squirt ok with good pattern when 
running the pump and pushing the air intake flap.
has new plugs etc, o rings. have soaked the fuel dist plunger in 
acetone and put back togther.
