Re: 86 4kq stumbles when cold
My 87 4kcsq does the same thing. It seems to be related to the
engine temp., and only happens over a very narrow and well defined
temperature range. I have some ideas about what is happening, but
they are only speculation. I do know that by watching the temp
gauge, I can tell almost exactly when this is going to start
happening. At this point I keep the engine RPMs over 2k until the
engine warms up a little bit more. As long as I keep it over 2k when
driving there is no problem.
