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

Problem update:

David, Elvis, and others:

This weekend, Mike took his car over to help a couple of D owners pull
an intake and restore a valley of death, and during down time, they
had time to spend on the freak idle issue.

As a precaution, they went ahead and switched Idle Speed Motors just
to check, and they noticed that when the main harness was moved, the
engine was reving up.  Derek took off the coil cover and sure enough,
one of the harnesses was connected but apparently not making good
contact.  After that the car's idle issue seemed to be solved...
however on the ride home, he threw an alternator belt...again.  The
first one was because the guy who did the exhaust manifolds over
tightened it, but this time hes gonna sand down the pulleys because it
now seems that the belt isnt gripping and seems to just be burning
off.  Small potatoes, but thank you all for your help with the idle issue.
