Yes, I re cleaned the TB and checked the return spring and all was good. The throttle cable was moving freely. I took the car to another mechanic just to ask them about a repair I need for the wifes car and they heard the high idle and looked at the car real quick. They ended up using that "Kent Moore tool - J-37027-A" that Logan was talking about and lowered the idle on it and now it idles at around 600 to 700 RPM's with the A/C on and I'm leaving the IAC unplugged and it's been fine. They did it for free. So it's been a week and I can live with it for now. Still need the car so if it stays this way I'm good to go and not worrying about it till it acts up again.
Thank You for replying.Yes the striker goes down,all the way down.The problem is it won't go up. I thought that the toggle switch on the paddle switch reverses the direction?I flipped it up,I flipped it down.The striker only goes down.This is a brand new switch and motor..Could I have a bad paddle switch?I also see this switch called the reversing switch?
I live in Terre Haute, IN. Do you know much about 4.5 Liter engine? I have a 1988 Fleetwood (FWD)... I am needing to find someone to do some work on it.
