|so, when i go and drive my car, it idles find on flat pavement when you first start it. but when it is on a hill of any kind except pointed downhill, the idle fades out and it starts running rough.
i have been running the car on 87 with ethanol which is going to be changed today (i didnt know! and im gonna fill up the rest of the tank with 91 today.)
i started it last night in my garage for a couple minutes and it idled fine on the flat ground, a few little sputters but pretty good.
Ideas? once up to speed it runs fine... and i turned up the idle a bit, so it runs at like 6 bar when you first start it. is that too high? i sat in it for like 5 minutes and the idle never dipped lower than 5.5 bar.
