See now we are getting somewhere, but you flunk.

Let me correct a few misconceptions and see if we get some diagnostic hints from that special sentence.

First: With a good OVP a warm car set properly will notice no difference when the OVP is unplugged!!!!! can we say "limp home" While warm starting will not be affected.

Second: With a dead controller the idle valve goes to it's "limp home" position which is a little faster (on a 300E) than a proper running car at idle untill put in gear and the A/C turned on at which time the fixed setting is not enough for full idle speed.

I'd love to spell out my conclusions but think more time should pass to let others think this through. If you can't wait write me and I'll tell you how I see it.
