my car actually starts now everytime, and runs well when warmed up. but iw as wondering if there is a way to turn down the idle or something. when i give it gas and then let off, the idle goes down and sounds fine, then it idles up pretty high, but not super high, and then stays there till i hit the gas again. whaty causes it to do this. also, does anybody havea working cluster. i screwed mine up so now my gas gauge doesnt work, so i dont know how much gasoline i got!!!! well, thanks for your help.

did you clean out your throttle body? also it sounds like you need an SI board, that other one must have been bad too

its right on top of your motor attached to your intake. Just open up the butterfly and spray some carb cleaner in it and clean it with a rag
