Default Still stalling

If you read my previous post you know where im coming from.

The interruptor install was sucessful. The car no longer stalled.


However it still started and idled down real low, about 500rpms, almost stalling, then picking up to about a 1000-1100 idle. Driving down the road it was fine. It used to stall before the interruptor install. However tonight at lower speeds it did stall, then it stalled as I pulled into the driveway. Since then I drove it about 20 miles and it was fine. The car is playing tricks on me. Maybe someone can shed some light on this? The computer is throwing NO codes.

I would like to get this running right, at least until I pick up a new car, and retire this or sell it in good running condition.

Notice the IGN module setup. Mine is just like that. Is it a Magnavox?

I can't remember, did you already pull and clean the IAC valve? It'* free and can't hurt to try.

Not yet I will get to that this weekend.
Also, all is well. No stalling yet. Yes, I pulled the battery cable off overnight. I think the EMC is finally re-adjusting.

Because you reset the ECU, yeah that'll happen. You can pretty much expect that anytime you reset the ECU. Even if you didn't do anything and just randomly reset it.
