Unfortunately, you are not supposed to adjust the ide as the computer does that for you. Are you having a problem with the idle in your car as in too low?

I've never done that, but if I were a betting man, I'd say you cannot take the idle motor apart.

Hey Kris, I'm in Knoxville, too. What color Cobra do you have? I'll be in a white 95 and give a wave when I see you!

Sorry, been on vacation in VA. Just getting to this. You may just need to clean your mass air. Check the links below.

Question Gas Mileage?

What kind of MPG do you guys think I am getting? I know its not super great or anything, but I'm just curious. I'd say between 15-18 city and maybe 22 on highway? What do you think?

We drove to Virginia last week and got 19 city and 22 highway (70mph) with the new 2.73's.

On a side note...I picked a side road to cross the mountins from Virginia to West Virginia heading towards I77. Got on route 250 at Staunton. Va and headed west. That road would give the Dragon a run for it's money. Same type of curves with some good elevation changes thrown in.
