Salaam / Hi All,

Having a strange issue with my dad's bantam with the FE3 engine and dictator ecu.
It started idling really low and would struggle on cold start.
Took the bakkie on the road to check fueling etc, made some adjustments and everything was fine, idled smoothed and drove nicely.
The next morning, bakkie would not idle whether cold or warm, idles at about 450-500rpm.
Looked for an air leak but could not find anything.
when we unplug the vacuum at the fuel regulator the revs would climb to 1000rpm and hold but after some time it would drop again.
I feel like I am missing something here and would appreciate the assistance.

Shukran / Thanks in advance

The novalty of having an oldskool engine will wear off when some punk kid smokes you in his Susuki Baleno with hairdryer,neons and roof wing And when you pull up at the next set of lights he'll suggest to race for headjobs, cause in his mind having to give or take... Its still a win-win
