    wire fell off!

    Sounds like the wire fell off the choke--or it blew the choke fuse.-or the choke coil itself failed--.both cause the choke to close again--and the fast idle cam to kick in again--not good on a warm engine--it will make it run real rich,and maybe flood--and KILL your gas mileage :eek1: --something you need to fix ASAP,and not just because of gas prices--it will gas wash the motor and dilute the oil and wash the oil off the rings if you drive it that way for too long.. :doah: :crazy:
