Replaced the OVP to cure the hot start problem. Will see if that fixes the problem for good.
I still have that nagging problem with the pulsating idle (tach needle bounces between 500-1000 rpms). Car runs fine otherwise. Problem seems to occur when car is stopped, and usually worse when in gear.
Disconnecting the air flow meter got the idle pulse to cycle slower, so I tried replacing that unit, but problem persists.
Any ideas out there?
