I have a '94 2.0 8V aut. which suddenly drops the idle to very low or stops. It appears when the engine is at normal operating temperatur. When I restart the engine, the idle speed rises very slowly to about 500 on the rev counter. This can happen many times a day, then it works normal for several days. I have not been able to se any pattern in this behaviour. Any ideas?
the symptoms of the crank sensor would cut the engine out rather than give erratic idle but it is worth mentioning it because it is a common problem to all cars these days, the wires to the crank sensor get brittle after a few years due to heat then they short out and in most cases the engine just dies.
now this my area 16 pin is the norm alda " computer connect point" ground pin 6 to earth and switch the ignition on the mil "engine warning light" will flash the codes, one long = ten and short busts= seconds and dont take it to a dealer, then take is fo a 20 mile run to restet the internal computer (its called a cysle)
