Re: '87 2.3L Warm Rough Idle
Well I guess this could be considered solved.
I got the codes pulled again and it came up as low voltage to the EGR Position sensor.
So I picked up a new one and it did solve the issue of it wanting to bog down on warm idle til it almost dies.
The idle is now fairly consistent although still a little rough, but stable none-the-less.
The funny thing is I even cleaned this darn thing when I cleaned all the other culprits [ IAC, MAP, EGR solenoid, etc.]
I did notice the second time i pulled the sensor off a light brown shade on the internal point of the sensor, similar to what a screwdriver would look like after running a match under it; burnt metal.
I stand corrected, the new EGR Position sensor did not fix the idle bog down i am having. It did seem to help, but now after driving the truck for a little while at normal temp it reverts back to its old habits??
Any ideas at all would be most helpful and appreciated. If i have left anything out, i apologize, i'm still new to this.
