Idle Adjustment screw for 1800 engine
I have an 08 1800F and I'd like to set the idle adjustment at 900 RPM.
The screw under the coolant reserve is spring loaded and difficult , to me at least, to adjust with the spring
keeping the screw from turning and staying put. At this point, after it warms up the idle sets at 1000 RPM.
That's not too bad however my problem is when the engine is still warm after an hour or so the RPMs
after restarting drops to 800 RPM and even dips below briefly. I have read on a thread through Spike
that anything under 800 is not good due to possible oil pump problems. I would like to set it up a tad
but the spring action is keeping me from turning the screw. My Clymer manual doesn't get into detail
on how this adjustment works. Any advise from the techs would be appreciated.
