Question about 1991 Plymouth Laser
My car is a ford laser kh 1.8 1991, 5 speed manual.
It started off idling high once warmed up, but would then drop back after a few moments/minutes. Now, its constant once warmed up.
It 'seems' that once warmed up it also almost stalls due to missing, if say, i'm tryign to take off (under 2500rpm), but runs normally once its up past this rpm.
I took it to the garage and had new fuel filter, new spark plugs and a 'rocker cover seal' (for an oil leak) put in.... however this did not help, and they suggested an auto electrician.
There is also one unattached wire that is red and black, comming from the fuse box bit, to the right of the engine, near where the cable goes to the distributor cap. could be anything eh? can't see where it could have gone though.
Finally, the car, once heated up, if left for a minute or two, will not start. 3 goes later, it feels like its running on 2 pistons, and blows a LOT of smoke - reving it high helps to make an embarressing get-away.
Any help is appreciated, truly.
I would check ecu i had same problem open it up its behind the dash and look at the 3 big capictors im bettin ones leakin

When you re-connect the battery and re-start the car, it has to "re-learn" all the correct settings for your particular car's engine all over again and the only way that happens is by actually using the car. Taking the car to the dealer as someone else suggested won't do any good, unless you like paying $65+ per hour for the mechanic to drive your car around and get it all warmed up. :-)
After about the first 10 miles, the idle will be much better. It will take 30-50 miles for the entire re-calibraton to finish. Take a 25 mile interstate road trip one way, turn around and come back home.
