  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Ah! The LD9 motor. Much more potent. Idle issue? Is the SES light on? Sounds like either a sensor, or vacuum leak. Usually the TPS or IACV sensor gives a bad idle when those go bad.

yes the SES light is on ..

there was a Vac leak i fixed. does not seem to be any more

the car runs rich as hell. has new coil pack as ... well they always like to go bad.

seems to run fine when its cold outside or the car is cold. one its warms up outside or the car warms up after runnin 20 mins. it goes nuts.

new injectors , new fuel pump , new evap (sp?) thingy ..lol thats where the vac leak was as well.

i dont know what TPS or IACV sensors are .. or where they are located.. sorry when it comes to the workings of the motor i know little to none
