Guys n Gals,
Need some tech discussion here. I recently put the FICD on my VR4 and it has solved my engine mati problem. Now, the idling is very nice. But only after I run the car. What I meant is, if I want to off the engine to go down and buy something. When I come back, start the engine, the idling will be very low, and sometimes do mati engine.

But when I rev a bit, or continue to drive and on the air-cond, after 1-2 mins, it will be ok. What is going on?

Another issue is that after 2 months putting on the FICD, now, the idling somehow is not that perfect anymore. It is lower, slightly lower, especially when I am stuck in a jam or just cruising. But when I am speeding with high revs, then it is alright. Any reasons for this?

Help needed.

Why SAFC?

The issue is that most of the time, my car is ok. Only when sometimes cruise, it happens.

Menace,
How can the SAFC help?

CyborgR,
How did you solve your problem?

Boosook,
I think your one is a different problem. Ask your mech. and see.

experience it wit my previous ride.Live wit the unstable idling for 2 years.Bought the FICD but never used it.
The best thing is, the problem suddently dissapeared, without doing anything to it.
However, ironically...it did came back when I'm about to sell off the car, sigh!
