    Default engine running roughly

    My 1989 Mi 16 is cutting out on me if revs drop below 2000rpm. I've replaced fuel pump, filter and HT leads. Thinking that it may be loose accelerator cable/idle problem. Does any mi16 owner have any experience that may help me?

    need to check IAC, and speed sensor (besides sending info to the dashboard, also sends to the ECU) (off course, discard vaccum leaks, spark plugs, etc)

    sounds like the idle solinoid. (the big silver thing strapped on top of the inlet manifold).
    Does it have any lights on the dash, whilst running?
