Have someone look at your idle control valve, and check all your high-pressure hoses to make sure you're not losing gasoline anywhere. That's probably not it.

It's an inline six, by the way.


Four Five Six - It's on.

With the fuel mixture being sold in USA many are finding issues with idle.

The gasoline is being converted from MTBE to alternative additives.

Using a restrictor with a 1/4 inch hole to control the maximum RPM.

Here is a link to Sam.
