Will I notice a difference from playing with the throttle afterwards? I moved it to te right about half a turn ( started with 1/8 like it says in the bently ) and want half a turn from the 0 position again to the left. I didnt notice a difference at idle, and when i gave it some throttle i didnt see any difference there either. which was it lean which ways is rich? and my car idles erraticly at first and bogs down. I cleaned everything but i dont think my airfuel is correct and i dont have a airfuel gauge. what do i do?

counterclockwise is lean and clockwise is richer I believe. Maybe somebody can verify that?

Don't turn that adjustment screw without a multimeter hooked up to the DPR! Measure it at operating temp. - the lower the mA the richer the mixture. If you want a good idle, set it to 5 mA. Check your 02 sensor.

the bently says i should have that special hook up device thing and not use the multimeter direct. please explain exactly which leads i touch to which terminals with the DPR. thanks

eastcoastdubs,
You need two books;
1. the Bentley for your car
2. Bosch Fuel Injection & Engine Management
Good luck,
fat biker
