Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Above idle while driving are there issues with the rpm?

Are you behind on any maintenance?

up on oil changes , air cleaner. But have not given a tune up. it only happens when idling.

Let's do a few things to help out.

  1. While running slowly add a bottle of sea foam to an open vacuum line.
  2. Remove both battery cables and hold them together for one minute.
  3. Go ahead and do the tuneup
  4. Add double strength injector cleaner to a full fuel tank
  5. Clean the throttle body while open
  6. Replace the idle air control valve.
  7. Reconnect the battery and road test for at least 2 days.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris
