Re: idle stab system

Most of the time the failure in the idle circuit (if it is ISV related ) is
in the mechanical of the ISV valve. One way to verify this, is also to plug
the 2 ISV openings and see if the idle stabilize some (works only on manual
transmission), if it does, you might have an ISV problem (valve, not
circuit). another issue which will give you high idle (other than air leaks)
is incorrect CO mixture, but you must ELIMINATE all air leaks BEFORE
adjusting the mixture.
