So, as you know, I got "Miss Piggy" up and running again, and successfully passed smog. However, a little more fine-tuning is still needed. The smog technician said there was a tube that I needed to connect. But since English wasn't his first language, it was a little hard to understand him. On the air intake snorkel, there is a little module that has what appears to be a small vacuum nipple, and when my father-in-law and I were replacing some of the vacuum lines under the hood last weekend, we did notice a small-diameter metal line that did not have anything attached to it. We followed the hose diagram as closely as we could, but may have mis-routed some of the lines, there are a few that are capped off as well. One of them appears to be an actuator for the cruise control. I'm just wondering if any of this might have something to do with the fast idle the car has right now. Even when warm, it seems like it idles at about 1,100 RPM (although that's a guess, since there's no tach). Even in gear, it idles on the fast side. If I had to guess, I'd say about 900 rpm. Doesn't matter if its fully warmed-up, it still idles fast. Will add photos later today.
