If you had this problem, do you have a solution? . Thank you and good day
Let me see if I can translate this. You've changed the air filter, and installed new spark plugs. However, your gas mileage is still lower than you think it should be, and your idle isn't consistent, rising as high as 1200RPM, and falling, until the engine warms up.

Permettez-moi de voir si je peux traduire cela. Vous avez changé le filtre à air et installé de nouvelles bougies d'allumage. Cependant, votre kilométrage de gaz est encore plus bas que vous pensez qu'il devrait être, et votre ralenti n'est pas cohérent, augmentant aussi haut que 1200RPM, et tombant, jusqu'à ce que le moteur se réchauffe.

**** Je parle un peut de Francais, mais pour cela, j'ai utilisé un traducteur (for the English speakers - I speak a little bit of French, but for this I used a translator).

Pour une solution à votre problème, vous pourriez essayer de nettoyer la valve de contrôle d'air de ralenti (IAC), et vous voudrez peut-être également nettoyer le capteur de débit d'air de masse (sur les voitures plus anciennes, les voitures plus récentes ont un capteur de pression absolue collecteur).

**** English translation: For a solution to your problem, you might try cleaning the IAC (idle air control) valve, and you might also want to clean the Mass Airflow Sensor (on older cars, newer cars have a Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor)

Now heres the funny thing about that... I actually typed into my good search engine which side of the road does France drive on, and it replied "Left"...

But if you follow the link in the answer (which I didnt), It says right. So I apologize for not following thru! I mean come on, google can never be wrong!

Yes, well, most Americans think I live in an igloo, and drive either an electric car (because of the cord hanging out) or a dogsled. So, the fact that an american search engine would claim that in France they drive on the left side of the road is no surprise to me.

For the record, I drive a gasoline powered vehicle with an electric BLOCK HEATER (that's what the cord is for), and I live in a house much like yours - made of wood. While some Canadians do drive electric cars, and some do drive dog sleds, and some even live in igloos (and some drive dog sleds AND live in igloos), that is not true for all (indeed most) of us. Oh, in case you were wondering, we don't all speak French, either, although some of us do (and as I note above, I do speak a little bit of French, but not really enough to carry on a conversation).

Now that we've cleared all of that up, shall we get back to solving our French friend's poor fuel economy issue?

Do you mean to tell me Canadians don't live in igloos!?

Hello, following my problem, I come back to give you news! I started by changing the 6 candles. The garage told me that there were 3 normal and 3 white candles ...
They were not on the same ramp. Tonight I roll and she cocks when I arrive at a stop. If a person has already had this problem, tell me what he did to remedy.
Thank you for your answers because I really want to keep this car. Thank you .

91sableinsk thank you very much for helping me and giving me research ideas because I am not a mechanic.
For the answers I manage with the translator, I do not understand everything either.

Hello everyone . I come back because my worries advance (a little). After seeing a few people, it is quite possible that it comes from an air intake on an intake hose.
If it happened to someone who is following this post,
I would like to know towards hose I must look. Thank you in advance for your answers . Have a good day
PS: I usually order at Rockauto but there is no "hose kit".
