[DML] Re: Strange problem with coming to a stop

I would start by checking that the idle micro is properly adjusted and
there is not a lot of play in the quadrant link. Next check the
adjustment on the cable to the shift computer and finally make sure
the Lambda is buzzing happily. These are the most common things to
start with.
