  • Idling issues, check your brake booster!

    For longer than I care to admit, I've had some idling issues with my car, mostly when coming to a stop. I'd have to feather the throttle to keep it from stalling, then once settled down it was OK, but not perfectly stable. I have Patton EFI, and there was no difference if the the idle air control valve was hooked up or not.

    My brake master cyl started to leak, and I thought since I had it out, I should get the booster rebuilt, since who knows how long it had been on there. Well, after getting the booster back, and re-assembling everything, WOW! What a difference! Idle is now perfect, no hint of stalling whatsoever. This is especially good news since the driving season is just starting here!

    Unmetered air, the enemy of idle quality everywhere. Nice find.
