Hi traceace, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

You have served your time and so as I in South Vietnam 70-75. Freedom is not cheap and so as you and me-Okay lets get to the program here-check the fuel pressure if its within specs if 5x5 there, Clean out the idle air control valve and see what happens and report back ASAP!
