I hit a pothole recently and ever since the idle has been a little high. How do I adjust the idle? Please let me know.
Thanks,

I think that you might have knocked a vacuum hose off during the impact of the pot hole. Check all of your hoses. The skinny ones, for cracks or to see if one of them is unhooked. Get back to me

Thank you so much for your help. So your telling me that there is suposed to be another hose that connects the two? Should I bring it to the dealer to find out what size hose and to see how long the hose is that I'm missing? Please let me know.
Thanks,
Paul

I found the problem. The skinny plastic hose that I told you about unhooked it self from the back of the manifold. And the little little curved rubber hose that I told you about on the bottom of the firewall on the passenger side is actually the drain hose for the air condtioner.
Thank you for all your help.
Thanks again,
Paul A. Smith
