According to a Haynes manual for the 1986 Celebrity Multiport F.I. 2.8 liter, I should have a " throttle stop screw" which can adjust the minimum idle speed, which is what I want to do ( provided the ECM doesn't adjust the idle )
In the same paragraph, "when the batter is disconnected, part of the ECM memory is erased, which makes it necessary to "reteach" the computer. This is done by thoroughly warming up the engine and operating the vehicle at part throttle, stop and go, and idle conditions."
So, I guess what I'm asking, if the ECM doesn't "reteach" the computer how the engine should idle correctly, ( in my case, idling too fast )
where is the throttle stop screw located, and, if this cannot do it, what can I mechanically adjust to slow down the idle?
