Two questions...

On my 84 5000S, there is the idle stablizer valve. On my car, the plug is 
UNplugged. It was that way when I bought the car last week. The car seems 
to run just fine as is. When I plug it in, the car idles almost at DOUBLE 
the speed. I asked the dealer and he said the valve is likely fried.
Am I hurting anything by leaving it unplugged? The car isn't showing ANY 
signs of pollution or anything. Where is the actual valve? Is it a pain 
to get to? The dealer wants about $400 Canadian. Is it recommended to go 
to a wrecker and yank one?
