Hi, was wondering if anyone had anything I should check before bringing my car into the shop. I've had this problem since I've bought the car and it has recently gotten worse. When I release the pedal on the gas....usually while braking...and reduce the drag on the engine...by pushing in the clutch, the car always faulters before sitting just under 1000 rpm. Seems like the idle solenoid doesn't act quick enough to keep the idle at min. Most of the time the idle picks up immediately and then all is fine. But, occasionally it will kill the car. The car is an 86 9000Turbo. Any ideas?
