Question about 1994 Suzuki Swift
My white Gti's cold idle speed is 1800rpm which is ok, but my blue GTi idles at 2,900 rpm when its cold. The GTi doesnt have a choke, ite fuel injection, so I thought that it was the idle valve. I swapped them over and no difference!! After a few minutes, it starts to "hunt", rev up and down when I put my foot on the clutch, then after 5 or 6 minutes, it idles nicely at 1000rpm. The idle adjustment screw next to the throttle only seems to adjust the warm engine idle speed. Any ideas? I've checked for air leaks and there are none. I'm stumped!!!
Disconnect b+ fron dizzy and engine runs fine

Well, depending on your market of course, I'd still be fairly sure you do have a choke! It is located on the rear of the intake air plenumn chamber and has 2 small coolant hoses that come up from underneath - one comes from the thermostat housing area, and the other goes to the water pump area. Disconnect these and make sure you can blow easily through the choke unit. Like most Suzuki thermo-wax choke elements, they need hot water to contract, and in so doing, reduce the amount of extra air let into the engine. Unfortunately, it sounds like you may have adjusted the throttle stopper screw (it may have had a tamper-proof cover on it). If you have, the throttle plate-to-barrel clearance should be set back to as close as what your other car is by measuring the clearance with feeler gages. Let me know how you get on. I've got a 1991 version of the same and I'm in Australia.
