Fluctuating Idle

Can A Radiator Leak cause a Fluctuating Idle?
Just Saw that my Radiator Had a Leak, A Nice size one too.
I Put Some JB Weld on it and ima see if that's it tomorrow

Re: Fluctuating Idle

burp your coolant [radiator] hoses with the car running and rad cap off, that should get rid of air bubbles. preludes have idle problems, you can always remove the fitv and set your idle with the screw, pretty sure you need a block off plate for that tho.
