Re: 85 Coupe Odo and ISV

Just personal expeience but if an ISV works sometimes it works periods
they rarely go bad(out of my 10 i-5's) and many others I have worked on
I have never had to replace one... Cleaning them helps though....
try tapping on it with a screwdrivers while it is surging (hard)
if it stops clean the thing... 
But surging I would check for vacuum leaks and possible CO out of
adjustment do NOT replace o2 sensor unless if you disconnect it it 
goes away...
