[DML] Re: Stalling issues

I hope that idling @ 7500 is a typo! I have to assume you meant to say
750. That is a little on the low side. Try bumping it up to 775 or
even a little more. My first guess would be the Control Pressure
Regulator aka warm-up regulator. It is supposed to enrichen the
mixture when the motor is first started up till it runs for a while
and warms up, then it leans the mixture. If it is not idling smoothly
(or at least smoothly for a Delorean!) you might have a dirty
injector, a bad ignition wire, or a misgapped spark plug. Other
possabilities include vacuum leaks, a problem with the ignition ECU,
the idle ECU, a valve adjustment, a low cylinder, etc. You need to
have all 6 cylinders working evenly to get a smooth idle. Start off by
making sure the idle motor is working and being turned on when you let
the car idle.
