Amidst one of the other posts on heat I mentioned that my idle was somewhat erratic and asked about it being a problem or not. Dan had suggested I look at the throttle cable which I did but it seemed fine. Well it happened again today and I rechecked the cable and found it was not returning properly. The first check was when cold and now it was hot as before when the problem manifested itself. One other problem I had was the tranny would not downshift into 1st when slowing down say for a turn and then would downshift exiting the turn as I pressed the accelerater. I've seen other posts for what might be the same problem so if the cable takes care of everything I'll post back. Once again, thanks Dan for your help! It would have been alot harder and probably take longer for me to find this on my own.
