2002tii

I have a 1974 tii that experiences an increase in acceleration, after it warms up a bit. When I come to a red light and stop, the engine will idle up to 1200-1500rpm. If I ease out on the clutch while in gear and with the brake on, it will settle back down.

Anyone know how to correct this idle increase??

Thanks

The Tii is an injected model right? So your idle is too high. It slows down when you clutch out because you have put a load on the engine.

tii's have mechanical fuel injection which requires a lot of regular maintenance. Get it cleaned up and it will idle just fine but the problem will return.

Thanks Woody, I just had the fuel injection system cleaned and it runs great, but still idles up when I stop. I have it back in the shop for an alternator and they are looking into it again, just a puzzle.

Thanks again
