OK after installing my new fuel pump my idle is all
over the place. I read the thread and have a question.

It says to turn the A/C on high for a minute. My A/C is
bypassed right now because the A/C compressor froze
up. Do I still need to do this step?

Thanks, Mike

No, if you don't have one that's functional. You do that so the ECU can learn to adjust the idle for the extra load.

You know now that you say that you may be right. My volts gauge
usually reads 14v now sits at 13v. I need to check the ground though,
when I turned the key to start, power cam on but it didn't crank. Turned
it off tryed again and fired right up, hmmm....

You can also turn your steering from lock to lock,,but we always just drive it for a bit,,the idle air moves around a little while your driving too..

You can do all that, but an alt (unless it's a very high amp alt) kicking on won't affect the idle much. I know my stocker does not, but the 200 amp alt I'm putting on it will be a different story I'm sure, if it is heavily loaded. :good:
