Hi again,

Just reread your email.

Do you mean that the ISV could be worn and thereby allowing more vacuum in
than called for?

That would make sense.

But there's something I don't understand. Why would engine RPM increase
when more air is pulled into the engine.

BTW: I understand that there are two computer control boxes in the 5000.
Which one controls the ISV? Where do I find it?
