Alright! I have been working on this problem for awhile and I am out of ideas here.
If I am driving off the highway at high RPMs and slow down to stop my idle remains high. I have petronix electric ignition because who wants to deal with points? Last weekend I ripped my vacuum system completely apart looking for leaks and tightened everything back down with clamps. My EGR valve hole is nicely plugged up and I have ruled that out too. So what is going on here? I am going to check if my distributor is sticky today but I am out of ideas.
Another problem that I haven't found anyone else having online is that my engine timing likes to "travel" from -7.5 BTDC towards -12 over the course of two weeks before I have to adjust it again. Has anyone else suffered from this problem?
Lastly, has anyone dealt with an oil breather box spewing oil? It is making my engine bay a mess. What might cause this to happen?
Any help or ideas would be much appreciated! _________________ Beetles are the slayers of snow!
