Subject: Rough Idle

Have 89 9000 w/o turbo. From cold start never a problem. No rough idle when car is stopped (e.g. stop sign). However, if car is shut off and then restarted when hot, the rough idle problem develops. At stop signs, I must depress accelerator just enough to force engine to run smoothly. The rough idle is particularly annoying when backing up. Dealer either doesn't want to fix or doesn't know what to do. At one time the fuel pump was replaced to no avail. Anyone out there have any ideas? Thanks, Phil
