I'M STILL SEARCHING FOR THAT MISS. COULD SOME ONE EXPLAIN TO ME THE ROUTING OF AIR THROUGH THE IDLE AIR VALVE. THERE IS A U-SHAPED HOSE (#1) FROM UNDER THE FUEL DISTRIBUTOR AREA THAT GOES TO THE IDLE VALVE, THEN A HOSE (#2) TO THE IDLE AIR DISTRIBUTOR. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE IDLE AIR DISTRIBUTOR THERE IS A HOSE (#3) THAT CONNECTS TO THE AIR FILTER HOUSING AND THE VALVE COVER. I ASSUME #3 IS NOT A VACUUM HOSE. AM I CORRECT IN THINKING THAT #1&2 HOSES ARE? IS THE AIR GOING THROUGH THE IDLE CONTROL VALVE REALLY AIR AND FUEL MIXTURE ON ITS WAY TO THE IDLE FUEL DISTRIBUTOR? OR IS THE AIR GOING THE OTHER WAY?
I HAVE READ A LOT AND AM CONTINUING TO READ OTHER'S POSTS OF THEIR PROBLEMS AND FIXES. I AM DETERMINED TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS PROBLEM...
YOUR REPLY IS APPRECIATED!!!!!!!
