For all you with a "rough idle"
I have had a rough idle for the last 1-2 months. When I say rough I
mean that the idle fluctuated +-100rpm at idle, whether the engine was
warm or not. In the middle of this I changed to Garrett ver.11, this
did not help.
I was not worried about it becuase it did not bother me, it wasn't such
a big deal.
Well, last weekend I decided to take a look at the filter and see how it
looked. I took out the pre-screen and at least 50% of the surface area
was blocked. I decided I would just remove it. I know, I know you all
are saying I should have done this at the beginning, but I am very
careful about what I do.
So, I removed the screen and the rough idle is now gone. Plus, the
throttle is just a bit smoother. Please, I did not gain 2 hp with this,
it is just smoother.
If any of you have a "rough idle" please check the pre-screen before
anything else. I bet this is the cause of most people's problems.
Have a nice day-
