'91 200: Minor surging when warm
1. My engine exhibits a slight surging that increases a bit when the
engine has warmed up in afternoon rush-hour heat. Distributor & rotor look
okay, have about 15-20k miles on them. Replaced a couple of vacuum hoses
which improved starting and performance, but still have the slight rolling
surge. I have some Techron I've been meaning to put in the tank at fill-up.
Used some last Spring, but didn't see much change in engine smoothness. Any
ideas on what I should do to find the problem?
2. The temperature gauge also does not appear to engage but
intermittently. I understand I should perhaps replace a brass-encased
"switch" that corrodes due to its odd mount (part name? Number?). Could
this be partly responsible for the surging? Anything I should change while
replacing or cleaning existing gizmo?
