Question about 1986 Chevrolet Suburban
This is a 86 4x4 suburban. It starts right up. it idles fine. I drive it, which it drives fine. then it warms up a bit and wont idle on its own. it drives fine if i drive with my foot on the brake and gas. any help would be awesome. since this is my daily driver.
This is only a suggestion because it worked for me. With a cool engine, use a can of store brand carb cleaner and spray the heck out of it. Get it into the linkage well and let it sit for up to and hour or so....stuff some rags on the intake manifold to soak up the excess. Then, after letting it sit, get your 'Burb up to operating temp. Should be the ticket for you....and no, your engine won't catch fire.
