one, i removed my blue nasty looking filter and put a nice chrome one on that shows the air filter, but now im having idling problems, it wont idle down after i let off the gas from driving it stays at 1500rpm, ive plugged the coast valve and idle compensator. i have adjusted the air mixer screw were it drops to 750 rpms and it stays running fine, once i start driving the car it stays up at 1500 rpms, unless i pull the choke out and release it then it will drop down to 750rpm. i have the dizzy hooked up the the second nipple on the carb from the front of the car back.
anyone have any idea on what could cause this problem, i have all emission unhooked but not removed its an 84 rx7 gsl with a 85 gs 12a motor in it 5 speed
One of the little hoses from the blue air cleaner, the one with the thermostat-looking gizmo inside the cleaner, is called an "Idle compensator." You need to plug that hose where it enters the ratsnest, else you have a nice vacuum leak, which raises your idle.
