AW: [DML] Re: IDLE ISSUES(FIXED)-No Acceleraration

Get a tune-up for you car, now probably everything is off !


These car?s have an idle speed control system. if it idles 1100rpm

something if totally wrong ! (of the butterflies are not closing of the

still is not being hit).


Idle should be around 800rpm. maybe when cold it may idle 1100rpm for 

a few seconds but never warm !


The mixture should be set with a CO tester next to the car or at least

if you are sure the O2 sensor is OK you can read the PWM-signal that 

drives that valve below the air filter (also connectable at the connector

on the left engine side near the fire wall). 

how much did you turn that screw ? when adjusting it we talk about 1/6 or

1/10 turn !


I bet it?s running too rich now?

All I did was adjust the CO  screw which some said not to, but I ran out of
HOWEVER now my problem is no Accelleration on frist or second gear from a
standing stop, it feels like the cat is blocked but it is hollowed out.  No
power, feels like it will stall unless you give it lots of gas to get going
but everything else is fine idles about 1100 RPM hot or cold and does not
Did I not set the CO correctly or where  should I begin to look to dianogsis
this problem?
Any Ever experience this?
