Re: 90 lude... acceleration problem

After doing a good tune-up and checking all vacuum hoses, I'd seriously consider getting a new idle control valve. Too many people over the years are trying to clean them out but a new one should start up at 1500 rpm's and idle down at about 770 rpm's. A20 year old valve isn't gonna last forever but do all the other maintenence first cause it's cheaper.
