The 800 does have a kind of clumsy idle that is normal. It doesn’t purr like most engines, if that makes sense. Have you compared it to another one?
No kidding? No I have not.
Went to the local dealer yesterday and got all the fluids for service and new plugs.
Talked to a mechanic there and he said sounds like a TPS issue. He said it was very common for it needing and adjustment after a TB cleaning with the bad idle.
Well.... Did all the fluids, belt and plugs yesterday. Pulled the TB, cleaned, new plugs, pulled injectors and cleaned them, tried adjusting TPS like he said, just can't seem to get it right. Same problem.
Looked online found a TPS on Ebay, it's 12 bucks so I ordered it and a service manual. Should have it real soon so will see what happens. Going to update this thread in hopes of helping someone in the future. Still need to try and find a pigtail for voltage adjustment or I'll have to probe the wires. I don't like to do that to wires that are exposed to moisture. Will figure something out.
Once the bed is off it's a piece of cake to work on, so that's a good thing.
maybe I'm chasing my tail on the idle but it sure seems bad. I have no way of comparing the idle to another 800. Seems that dealer mechanic would have mentioned that?? If someone posted a video with good sound that would be awesome.
