Unplug one wire engine started running even worst, two wires out its stop running at all. I guess my ECU works good.

Not sure if the 350 has the ELR adjustment knob or not. If you do, it's on the firewall behind the fusebox. It's numbered 1-7

Your engine doesn't though. With the EDS solenoid unplugged, the idle should be ~500 RPM. If the engine won't idle that low, you have some severe mechanical problems or the IP is seriously out of adjustment.

The EDS solenoid on the back of the IP is a 2-pin plug. Not sure how you unplugged one wire or another, but it's unimportant - if you unplugged EITHER of the pins on the EDS solenoid, it should have had the same effect - low RPM.

Oops! A Mistake!

Just a 2018 update to this thread, I made a mistake on one of the capacitor values! The 7F is actually a 1F!

When I originally recapped my ECU, the top was split open on most of my caps. They were those crappy brown "UK" caps that ALWAYS die (seriously, if you see one in any of your car's electronics, just replace it, they're crap!). Because the font is extremely hard to read, I assumed it was a 7F, especially due to the size of the capacitor.

Flash forward to today, and I was reworking an ECU for a friend's SDL and noticed his was a 1F of a different brand. Same board, same layout, same design.

I've fought an intermittent idle hunt that's been significantly worse since I tuned the injection pump....at an idle it's like someone rhythmically goosing the throttle, and it isn't always present, but will show up at some point every time the car is driven. Since changing that capacitor to a 1F, it idles rock steady, no hunt at all!

This thread is old enough that I can't go back up and edit the original post, so hopefully future readers will make it this far and notice the update.

I have been dealing with 603 powered vehicles for many years and have had this issue on several cars and could never figure out what it was. This is great info.

This is MY SDL in question BTW guys.!



Late timing cover ordered. No 17 head receiving full rebuild. Guides, OE valves, springs, stem seals. This is very exciting news on my end.

Question EDS/ELR

Where is this solenoid and cm box on a 93 w140? Would these idle symptoms be the same ? My ac blows cold and works great but initial start up is rough idle.

The main symptom this box was giving is a lope at idle, like someone fiddling with the rack lever and goosing it in a rhythmic cycle. A rough idle when cold is unlikely to be the EDS system, you can easily enough test the theory. Unplug the 2 pin connector on the big red solenoid on the back of the injection pump and start the car. Idle speed will be ~500-550. If your roughness continues, the EDS system has nothing to do with it and you have mechanical, glow plug, injection, or compression issues.

Ok, Would smoke be in the mix with all this? #2 had a pc leak, I installed a new one but it's still not smooth,better though. Also saw lots of black liquid when I did a diesel purge. Its somewhat better but still not clear in the bottle, have to continue. I pulled the ETR pin, ng car barely ran if at all. While upon inspection I noticed oil and some coolant residue around #1 intake manifold port,coolant thermostat neck area. It's losing oil, and it's making its way down the head and block, that could be why? Also turbo at intake has oil in it, a small line. The impeller is not freewheeling more on the tight side with no play. Time for a compression test?. Sad because everything works Hvac is very nice both heat and ac. It's a florida w140 and needs very little body wise to be mint. Interior is almost perfect. If motor is ng Id like to do a 606 st with matching trans.. It would be the ultimate concrete living room.

I read page 2 of this thread bought the caps, went to replace them and found the 1F instead of 7F... then I went on to read page 3. Lesson learned lol. Fortunately I had a 1F cap in my stash. No worries.

I figured that would happen to someone at some point. By the time I found the issue, the thread was old enough that it wouldn't let me change the original posting.

No worries, I really appreciate the write-up and now my idle is dead steady all the time.

Eric is a good dude, fixed my box right up. Did my SD's also because he is just that sadistic!
