Hello Jay , my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. Confirm that engine speed drops to near stall speed when the air bypass hose is pinched off if so then disconnect the three-wire connector from the new idle control motor and, if necessary, tap the motorand see if engine idle speed drops to base idle. Check this for me and post back with the results and we can work from there.
