Subject: Cold Idle Problem

"If the valve dies completely there will be little change in RPM from cold start to
fully warmed but passing this doesn't rule out a partial failure."

I saw this answer to another concern and am wondering if this may be why my BII is stalling when
cold (due to low idle), it runs fine when warm. Is there a temp sensor other than the one for the
gauge? Any other possibilities? (Not EGR, changed it to solve my warm stall problem, fixed it)
Actual symptoms:
Starts fine. Runs at high idle for approx 5 seconds and drops to regular idle. Stalls when I put
it in gear (unless I feather the gas). Runs fine w/ A/C (Still using it in Charlotte). 87 BII,
2WD, V6, A4OD (LD?), 260,000 miles - No Firestones (Never liked after that Firestone 500 issue).

Thanks,
Bill

The dealer has had the car for two days, today makes 3!  Last time they replaced the gem, this time they replaced the shift motor, but it still won't shift in to 4wd.  They told me last night that they had been talking to Ford Engineering and had a couple ideas to try today.  I'll talk to them about the electrical.
Thanks!

Possibly...

Most certainly; As I recall it's near the thermostat housing, the connector is
roughly 3/4" diameter with 2 pins in it.

idle.

Before the problem started how did it act cold?  High for 5 Sec. then a
'gradual' drop over the next 15-200 Seconds?

And in Wilmington!

Forgot about the GEM, probably a good call there.  A good friend used to work
for Chry and got to know the engineering dept. well!  Ford's diagnostic
routines leave a bit to be desired at times, but they're several orders of
magnitude better than Mopar's...  If I had a Dollar for every Mopar computer
condemned by the 'proper' tests in the US I could retire.  ;-)  (Of course a
buck for every one replaced of all makes by guessing or poor testing would
qualify me as wealthy...)

Hope it's fixed soon!

Tim
