Replace the ignition module. Roverguy.com has [or had a while back] New in box genuine for under $100. BTW does yours have the relocation kit yet? If not, see if he has a used one. Hot intermittent dying seems like module or the little black chicklet resistor or whatever it is, but 9/10 I would guess ignition module.

it should be near the coil, there is a little black thing on the side of the distributor about the size of a box of matches. the relocated should be similar to the "thing" on the dizzy on an aluminum plate.

Id relocate the ignition module if it hasnt been. As far as the idle hunting around a couple hundred RPM's big deal.

The point is I don't understand the rpm cause. I would assume thry are tied together.

My 95 SW is doing the exact same thing. Once it warms up it will sometimes surge when I come to a stop. Is your check engine light on? I am throwing code 44. Had a couple of things replaced, next on the list are both O2 sensors.

So I took my truck to the shop I normally use (Four Oaks) as I needed to have my brakes done and don't want to go back to the original shop. They said that I still have the ignition module in the original spot but if there was a problem it would take much longer to restart on the few times it has stalled. They did say that my base idle was set too high and they readjusted it and think it is fixed.

On another note they told me the bolts to my rear drive shaft were loose and rattling. This really pisses me off. The first shop did my 60k service and had the truck in three times for a total of at least a week and drove it for 50 miles and never said anything about it. I noticed the rattle when I picked it up but was sick of going back.

OK rant over.

Yeah clearly just because every employee is from England does not mean they know anything extra. Last time I pay extra for an accent, unless of course we are talking about hookers. Well I did get f*cked

So the shop just called. Truck is ready but my idle is still a bit strange to me. Stops at 1000 and after 3 or 4 seconds goes to 800. They say it is normal but I swear my truck didn't do it before that. They said it is nothing but I do wonder if a new stepper or different ECU would do anything.

Give it a few days, see if it calms down.

Got the truck and it idles fine. Stopping at 1000 isnt noticeable like stopping at 1200 to 1300. It drives much better.

John stop crying, your shit box is on the rack.

ha it drives well now that the rear drive shaft bolts are tight.

I saw Larry packing your new transfer case with sand. Is that normal?
