I just did a mpfi swap this past weekend and now my rpms keep rising and falling all by itself and the car idles high now. all the wiring was done right i just cleaned out my iavc. could this be my dizzy doing this or could i have bad timing? or even a vaccum leak? im desperate need of help this is my only car and need it for work.


any help is greatly appreciated


also when the idle bounces it goes up to about 2500 rpm and falls pretty fast to 1000k

if its a D series motor try unpluging the green plug on the idle control valve, see what it does, it will throw a CEL. if no change i would look at map sensor.

why did you go to multi point?

when u disconnected that you loose your high idle for when the motor is cold. and it sounds like its doing its job. You might need to do a idle adjustment since its mpfi now.

let your car warm up then, while the engine is running, disconnect the IACV electrical plug behind the intake manifold, and adjust the idle screw to 800rpm. After doing that turn your car off, reconnect the IACV plug, then disconnect the battery for a couple of minutes to reset the ECU because you will have a CEL, doing this will get rid of that CEL. Connect the battery and your Idle should be at its normal range - 800 +/- 50 rpm"

I've never done this swap, but it does look like the same as a vacuum leak.  Maybe one of the lines is unplugged, or plugged in the wrong spot., or got a split as you were swapping everything.
