I have a 1988 mighty max that I bought with a rod knock. I have tore the bottom apart and replaced the cranck shaft and bearings ( main and rod) now that it is back together I am having idle trouble. cold...


I found this on another website on about adjusting the carb, not sure if this is the cause without knowing more information but give it a shot. should only take you about 10 minutes. "set the lever on the second highest step of the fast idle cam. measure the primary valve to throttle bore clearance, manual trans .031 inch automatic trans .035 inch, if its off, adjust it with the fast idle adjusting screw if you turn the screw clockwise the fast idle rpm increases,if you turn the screw counterclockwise the fast idle rpm decreases." You also may want to recheck the timing to make sure its exact.

Need adjustments for 88 model carter 2 barrel carburator. fits 4.2 jeep


To set carb adjustment, first set timing correctly, then put both a vacuum gauge and tach on the engine. adjust one idle screw to highest vacuum reading and highest tach reading, then do the other one. go back to the first and re-adjust again, then the other. I find that if you have a mechanical screw or a solenoid that holds idle speed on the linkage, turn them back so that engine is idling at the lowest possible rpm without stalling before making adjustments, then when finished, bring idle rpm up to recommended rpm using those. On an older carb, usually the idle screw covers have already been removed. If not, you need to remove them before you begin, usually best done with carb on a bench.

Attach a vacuum gauge to the manifold and a tachometer to the coil turn the adjustment needle valve in till the engine stumbles, then slowly back it out ''till you obtain the highest vacuum reading and best (steady) idle. then adjust the linkage stop screw, watching the tach for proper idle speed.

1988 honda accord dx hatchback won't idle when choke is off


find your cable that goes to your throttle body and look for a screw on a fixed plate, the screw should be touching a cam leaver for the throttle butterfly. if the is no screw it may have rattled out and you may have lost it. Or the idle is done by the computer i in the case you may have a fuilty sensor or computer.

1988 VW Fox Indicator Light - Rear


These old models of Fox's are just that old. I have been told that the engine light goes on due to the lack of oil pressure in the car. The valves apparently get worn out and create a lower pressure that the oil will pass through them...therefore sometimes this registers as an engine light going off every now and again. However, my mechanic has told me that these old german cars are like tanks and can run on and on and on....on lesser than normal oil pressure in the engine. Keep it well maintained and watch for any abnormal or steady warning lights. My mechanic says don't take the car any farther away than I would chance a tow ride back. If that is a hint or what! Lol.
