[DML] Re: Yet another Idle question

Just to reinforce Elvis' #4, I had a similar problem when I took 
things apart to change my thermostat. I disasembled less than I 
should have and slightly bent the throttle linkage arm so it got a 
tiny bit shorter.  This prevented the butterflies from closing 
completely. Fortunately, the arm length is adjustable and all is 
well now.
