Where Did You Hear Of searching random Camaro stuff
Hey All,

I'm having an issue with the choke light and fast idle on my 84 Z. I took it to a show last weekend and after starting it up warm the choke light came on. It stayed on until I gave it a rev and then it shut off. The next day I started it cold and the fast idle kicked on pretty high and would not go down until the car was at normal running temp and the choke light was on as well. Once the fast idle kicked down the choke light went off and it was running fine. I've never seen the choke light come on before and ever since I moved out to the warmer climate and had the carb rebuilt the fast idle hasn't kicked in til now. I'm thinking the choke wasn't working either. I like it better the way it was before.

What I'm wondering is if I disconnect the electronic choke if that will make the car run like it was and eliminate the fast idle. Do you think it would cause any other problems with the car other then the initial start up when it's cold? Any thoughts?
