Do you have the carter weber single barrel or the hitachi carb? The carter is widely regarded as a real peice of junk - the Hitachi actually isn't bad, but does need rebuilding after 100k miles or so... best bet if you have a hitachi is to install a Weber 32/36 DGEV carb, and toss the Hitachi cmopletely.

Try some carb cleaner on that linkage, and the throttle plate - may be sticky or something.

first the code 11 is of no concern it basicaly states the car lay out.
next look by the strut tower for a group of relays. next to those is a vacume sol. 2 wires I think and two vac lines. this is the idle up sol. it should pass vacume when 12v is applied and not flow when power is not present. I would start here and see what you find.

Are you refering to the AC idle up? It's an 84, and thus may very well not have AC..... do the carter webers have an idle up even if there's no AC? Wish I knew more about the carter weber so I could help with this one, but I still say switch to the hitachi.....

I'll test those solinoids tomorrow.

But even though this is a problem for me, I still want to know what the hell the ECS means! It comes on earlier and earlier when the car is warming up, so my guess is it is indicating a failing sensor or something, but I cant tell. I dont know where the diagnostic plugs under the dash are, or what color they are, so I can read the codes.
I suppose I can't just jerk the computer out, and the car will still run right. I'm guessing that everything is routed through it, including the radio!
This is getting to be interesting. I like the car, and want to make it a "street machine" so I can race the other "ricers" 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS STYLE!
Well, maybe not. I am not the racing type. But, I DO like fast cars, and I think this one has some potential.

Have you tried to adjust the idle? It is very difficult on the C-W. You need a small allen wrench and alot of patience.
