Help me fix my idle!
So i have been having a couple issues with my 85 318i.
First i replaced my head gasket and while putting it back together and reattaching the throttle cable i noticed (or thought) the cable seemed loose. So i adjusted the nut on the threaded part at the end of the cables cover. You know, not on the throttle body but where the cable's sheath ends at that bracket. The Bentleys says not to adjust this (I think) so i have since moved it back to where i think it was.
I put it back because the car was getting really jumpy at low rpm and kinda jumped through acceleration. It still does it but only slightly. How do i make sure it is where it should be?
Also i replaced my O2 sensor yesterday, i dont know how old it was. It seemed to run great after. But today while i was driving the idle started to get higher and higher each time i stopped, and then would be fine, then at another stop was high again. It went as high as 2000. I think thats as high as the icv will send it if its bad. How can i tell if it is the icv? Could the timing not have been set properly if the o2 sensor was bad? I have only timed it by ear because i dont have a timing gun (yet!). Any help would be great
