So i got a chance to tinker with my friends 2.3l CGT. It has an idle problem that when its been warmed up, after you let off the gas it will want to stall and then the idle will smooth out. So i pulled the ISV out and cleaned it, the valve was moving freely. Then I turned the ignition on with the ISV pluged in and I got nothing. Correct me if im wrong, but isint the valve supposed to be opening and closeing? The one on my 4kq does. Then I plugged the air hoses back in to the ISV and started the car. I then proceded to unplug the electrical connectors, figgureing that it would cause the car to idle incorectly or even stall comepletely, and nothing happened. I am assumeing that the ISV is bad. Am I wrong? Could it be anything else? There are no vac leaks that i could find. Any BTDT on a 2.3l like this? Thanks!!!!
