Re: 86 5kCSQ jerks when deacclerated
The characteristic you describe is always present, but can be
aggrivated(severely) by a large crack in the intercooler->throttle body
hose. However, other symptoms abound; trouble starting up out of 1st, and
problems getting boost(and missing at anything near 1.1 bar.)
Still pull the hose of and check it out(always a good thing to check
PS:question was added to the QFOM.
