typ44 turbo: stalls out, rough idle
thanks to all about the answers to the timing belt question..the general
consensus is its the timing belt tensioner/idler pulley bearings.
another problem ive had, since the timing belt was replaced, tho it prolly
doesnt have anything to do with changing the belt, is that now when i start
the car, the idle hunts up and down, then the car stalls out. (this is a '86
5kT w/ AT) after the second try, its ok, but idle still rough. i tried
adjusting the little brass idle adjustment screw at the intake, to no avail.
Also, yesterday i was on the freeway, doing 65, then i pulled over to help
someone on the side of the road, who had a flat, and before i could even put
it in park, it stalled out. i thought this was strange, since the car had
been running fine, why would the abrubt drop in rpms cause it to stall?
