When the engine warms up, the idle rises to 2100rpm. It stays there until coming to a nearly complete stop(~3mph), where it suddenly drops to 900. The car has no cruise or AC and has 62,000 miles. We brought it to our general mechanic, and he can't make heads or tails of it. Has anyone else had this problem before, or a good idea of what causes it?
Well, earlier i had posted a picture of my engine all torn apart so i could clean it up a bit. Everything from the air cleaners to the Intake Manifold came off. It was running great before hand, but now that ive put it all back on its running really really fast. First time starting it up, once it had a sip of gas it went right up to 5k before i shut her off. I pulled the fast idle scew down as far as it could go and im still idleing between 3-4k rpm with the choke out in the fully forward position. I havent moved any screws on the carbs while they were out and i put the choke lines back where there were in the first place. So which scews do i use and which way do i turn them to get the revs lower? HELP! :-P Heres what we have
