Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Dear denfrtx.... I had a problem that sounds just like yours. For me the problem turned out to be real bad compression in one cylinder and low compression in another. Compression should be 140 to 190 psi and my compression ranged from 75 to 145. I chose to replace my motor with one from a junk yard but the other fix would have been to tear down my motor and replace all piston rings and have the cylinder head refurbished. Car runs great at idle now, worth the effort. If you have problems with car not idleing, I would say at least check the compression on all 4 cylinders with a screw in compression gauge, it's easy to do and may give you clues as it did for me.
