[DML] Re: Need HELP!!! Odd Idle question...traveling and possibly stuck?!?

You must make sure the arm for the throttle returns positively to the
idle position. It should not have to be pushed and there should be no
rough spots or drag. Another possability is play in the ends of the
quadrant link. It is the small rod that connects the throttle spool to
the throttle arm. The throttle arm has to return all the way to idle
to trip the micro switch. You could have a sticky throttle cable.
Lubricate as per the throttle recall. Check that the floor mat or the
carpet is not interfering with the throttle pedal. Another check is
that when you step all the way down on the accelerator (with the motor
off!) the throttle spool hits the WOT switch. Check that the throttle
cable is not severly bent and is routed correctly. You said you had
the top of the engine all apart so you could have incorrectly routed
the cable. Check that the throttle spool is moving smoothly. Take it
apart and clean, lubricate, and reassemble.
