Hey guys

Car: EF Futura 4.0L running AU engine with EF manifolds.

My problem is
when im drive home from work in my car i would puch the clutch in when im comming to the light and i could have 2 grand or 4 grand on the tacho but the idel falls down to like a 300-400rpm and shutters for a sec or so then pulls it back up to 1000rpm.

I know my idel to high as well.

How do i adjust the idel on my engine

i was talking to guys at work and they said it could be the switch on the clutch pedal i didn't wire up when i converted the car to manual. but it will run fine some days and not do it.

What do you guys think???

(((where dose the clutch switch wire too????)))
(((how do i tune ef coil pack?)))
are you about to do timming light on coil pack????
reason i ask is due to cam angle sensor instad of dizzy
guys said something about .75mm throttle gap then unplug ISC and run car??? i did that car stalls within a instent. is my pvc valve shot?

are you running an auto ecu thats tricked for manual? if so then this stalling problem is a known sideeffect - mine does it sometimes too.

the clutch switch is only for cruise control - so you dont need it

you dont tune a coilpack. but you can check to see if the base timing is correct (grab a gregories manual for $30 from supercheap for that)

for the idle set procedure refer to gregories manual also.



Sold my EB :(
Now got my 300zx :)
