Hey Roger===If you stated the kind of car and engine you had it would be easier. Just guessing, it is either the cable to the throtle body or carb hanging or the idle solonoid needing cleaning. GoodluckJoe

A sizable vacuum leak could also do that.

i have a 94 Honda passport, my engine is a 3.2L with coil packs. the timing is non adjustable. on the 3.1L the timing indicator is located at the front of the engine by the crankshaft pulley. the timing set is 10-degrees BTDC @ 800rpm. disconnect the set timing connector at the distributor.
