Re: UrQ Cold Driving Problem

   "Sounds right (been a little while since I looked). It's right next
the A/C solenoid valve (I seem to recall a mass of hosery all coming
together in big knot!), I believe. The A/C solenoid is a short squat
thingiemajig, while the aux air vavle is tall and slender. There is
a small hex bolt at the base of the tall slender tower -- loosen that

Interesting note, during this time, no amount of radical adjustment to
the static idle speed screw made any difference to the idle at all. Any
more thoughts. Thanks.
