i just rebuilt the engine in my 924, and now when i start it the it hunts a bit before settling in at about 900 rpm for idle, anyone know why this is?

also, i'am having trouble getting my turn signals to work, when i hit the turn signal the light on the dash for turning comes on solid and doesn't blink, does the same when i hit the hazard lights, but the lights don't come on, i've already replaced the relay with a relay i know works, and i've replaced the hazard light switch with one i know works as well. does anyone have any suggestions on what my problem could be?(i've also checked all the fuses).

Thank you, Daniel

have you checked the connections to your turn signal globes?

I did mine a couple of weeks back and all the connections in the rear light array were really badly corroded. I cleaned all the connections and gave them a squirt of switch lube for a bit of protection.

Also, the 8-way (I think) snap connectors for the wires going into the rear light array were both so corroded that I had to replace them.

The front signals were dirty but the electrical connections were clean.

if the relay/flasher unit and the emergency switch are known good then it's a bug-hunt for a bad connection.

Only thing left is a quiet afternoon with Haynes in one hand and mulitmeter in the other.

Good luck

look for intake leaks and false air readings... Also your warm up air intake valve may be wierded out as well. Take it off and see if it opens and closes freely. You can hook up a 12 volt and check it with the two connections on there as well to see if it works okey
