Check throttle linkage is not too tight: Throttle linkage usually is 'slightly' slack to the touch. Check the idle screw (if any): Unless it has a carb or throttle body this (probably) wont apply (computer control) Check for vacuum leaks: With a can of spray lubricant, use the small tube provided to spray a quick small burst on vacuum connection with the engine running, listen for subtle changes in the engine RPM. If RPM changes, you probably have a leak there. Check all vacuum connections in this way. Replace hoses as needed. Check ignition timing: Consult the service manual for procedure. Make sure (all) temp sensors are working properly: If the computer thinks the engine is cooler than it is, it will idle higher. Consult the service manual for procedure. With engine fully warm no throttle solenoids (if any) should be engaged on the throttle linkage. I dont know how similar or compatible these engines are to each other, so, some other thoughts I had were mostly computer related: Data from coil or distributor not being reported properly to computer. Or sensor and computer incompatible. (timing) Data from temperature, or vehicle emission sensor not being reported to computer properly. Or sensor and computer incompatible.(temp, timing or mixture) Data from automatic transmission incorrect (mechanical, vacuum, or electronic sensor) make sure automatic Transmission Fluid is at proper level. There may also be a PCM (powertrain control module), erroneous data from or to the PCM could cause strange behavior. once again, how compatible are the engines? While your at it make sure coolant is full AND it is actually circulating when engine is warm. there is a idle speed motor somewhere on the throttle body they might have a different step counter that the pcm uses try swapping the origanal to the replaced t.b. also might want to swap throttle possition sensor. sounds like a vacuum leak condition so check for leak. map sensor may be no good as well. lots of possible causes.

Is started a Linking verb?

The easy way to recognize a linking verb is that a linking verb acts as an equals sign, the object of the verb is a different form of the subject (Mary is my sister. Mary=sister); or the subject becomes the object (My feet got wet. feet->wet).It would be difficult but possible to use 'started' as a linking verb, for example:The engine started itself. (engine = itself). or:She started the engine herself. This is not a linking verb because the object of the verb 'started' is 'the engine', not 'herself', the indirect object.Normally, 'started' is not a linking verb.
