Can someone please assist
Bought a 97 pacer end of last year. Have done minor diy basics , oil change , plugs etc but last week out of nowwhere she would not idle.
I havent touched anything in the engine for over a month , only replaced the vacuum pipe and its secured .
To be able to drive i have to use the choke , totally messing up incredible fuel consumption , when driving im now idling 2000 going to 1000 up and down all the time , the term i remember this as is "hunting" if i drive 60 + in other words open her up , no jerking , but if i decellerate i feel the jerking, like a misfire or something.....! She idles irregular then goes up , then down.....
I was advised by a mechanic (friend of friend) that i should look at the HT leads. I checked to see if any sparks coming off or arcing with lights off, didnt see any but replaced them in any case as they looked well driven!
I have seen some similar problems on here , so im trying to get to the bottom of this . The mechy has also suggested that one of the plugs could be dead , if that doesnt work , look at the CDI module on the distributor....am i going to solve this ??? My next step is to change the plugs , which i did about 3 months back , if that doesnt work the module???? If that doesnt work where should i look next?????? Any help would be gladly appreciated , this car has been regularly serviced , is in very good body shape etc , has over 225k on the clock , 1400 motor

Is this is carb or fuel injection one? I own 1.0 I.E. A single port injection model. It had the same issue and once I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) problem solved.
