strange idling problem
I have just bought a 1998 Maxum 2300 with 5.7 TBI mercruiser. It always starts easily but sometimes it imediatly cuts out, if i keep it running on the throttle it will rev fine but then wont idle most of the time .
It had code 21, 22 and 34 TPI high voltage, TBI low voltage and Map sensor low voltage . when I got it the idle was very high and rough , I found the ground and signal wires to the TPI were cut . after repairing it now has this slow idle cutting out problem.
I have cleared the fault codes and they have not come back, the previous owner fitted a new TPI and IAC .
When it does idle ok after a while the IAC starts to hiss loudly and with the flame arrestor off it can be seen to be opening up more, Is this the ECM trying to save the engine stopping because of another fault ? there is a steady spray from the injectors at all times , I picks up very well with no hesitation when the throttle is snapped open.
Any ideas please ?
