Re: Idle stablizer and Antilock light...


	As Mike pointed out, check for vacuum leaks before replacing
the idle stabilizer valve. Besides the dipstick, check the rubber hoses
that are part of the crankcase ventilation system. These run from the
crankcase to the idle stabilizer valve and onto the intake. The hoses
usually get soft and tear or collapse. This allows "unmetered" air
into the engine that the computer can not compensate for. Even a loose
fitting oil filler cap will cause this problem.

Regarding the ABS light, I would suspect the wheel sensors. Either the
sensor is not seated correctly or there is a loose connection. Its possible
that a sensor is bad, but that's rare.
