Other causes are : a vacuum / pressure leak due to bad vacuum hoses : or connections or a sticky AIC valve. The AIC valve : can be removed and cleaned up with carb. cleaner : or something similar. All of these things have been addressed. The only potential culprit I've got left is the ECU. : If you want/need to get the ECU fixed you might find it : cheaper to get a recovered one from a salvage yard. : Here in the UK I've been quoted between 80 and 150 : UKP. That's not too bad, but seeing as it's apparently a known issue I'd hate to get a salvage one that had the same problem. It's only listed as a recall for the 1995 model, so I wonder if a 1996 ECU would be compatible? If I replace the ECU, I'll have to have it reprogrammed, right? -- agreenbu Return to Main Index
