My 1993 ford tempo has a problem with the idle and starting. Has new battery and alternator was tested and is in great condition. The car has only 48000kms but was sitting for a long time.
The starting problem is that if it isnt plugged in it will crank, but will not start the first time. The second time it starts no problem for sure. When plugged in there is no trouble.
The idle problem is that it will fluctuate a little bit once in a while but while ago after driving and puting it in park it went up to 3000rpm. Tried kicking it down and it worked to get it back to normal idle. That happened a couple of times. Have had no trouble with it since. Was told it could be possible idle air control valve.
have the same problem?
