I have a 93 Shadow with a 4 cyl 2.2 motor. I replaced the head gasket this past spring and did a total tune up with plugs, wires, rotor, belts, hoses, everything.
The past few weeks, the car does not idle well at startup. When cold, the engine will not set at high idle. The engine will idle very slowly and flounder until you add some throttle. At this time the idle will smooth out and the car will run fine. This happens when warm also.
Now as the weather has been getting colder, the motor will start but will die immediatley. This will happen several times until the motor finally starts and stays running.
There have been no warning lights or check engine lights so it appears that no codes are being set. I am wondering can this be a vacuum leak of some sort or fuel related. Your help would be much appreciated.
