My '89 200TQ has recently developed a (small?) problem with rough running
under boost. I have checked several things (not all of the ones)
suggested by Scott.
Now it has started idling funny (strangely, not ha ha). From highway speeds
coming to a stop the rpms drop to about 1500 then fall to about 400-450
then rise back up to 850-900 then surge up to about 1200 then drop back
to about 850-900 again. Then it seems to idle normally when warm.
This morning I went out to sweep/scrape snow/ice and started the engine
to allow it to warm up. It started almost instantly. Then it idled
more or less as described above - kind of "seeking" up and down and died
while I was scraping the windows. It would not restart right then. It did
restart in a few minutes and ran just fine for the 30 miles to work.
I suspect a leaky hose somewhere may be the culprit for everything. Any
suggestions about specific places to look? I really would rather not
have to spend an hour or two under the hood with no garage and the weather
the way it is. :-) Six inches of snow and pretty high winds producing
wind-chill and drifts. Not much fun to be out in unless you're really
prepared for it.
