Here we go again. Was getting ready to reseal the cover on my air flow meter and noticed the Micro switch that is activated by the curved pin/ rod thing at idle is not making contact with the switch.
So what is the switch for?
Do I need it?
What should I do now?
Having trouble with my pic but will keep trying.

Never got that FSM and Turbo supplements I presume?

The microswitch was intended for use as an indicator of drastic
mechanical failure. Should the components let loose, the rod would
trip the microswitch and indicate malfunction. Surely this was
intended for other vehicle applications, as I believe the ones in our cars
have been modified with a stop that prevents movement in the
direction of the switch.

Should you consult the wiring diagram or diagnostic test
procedures, you would see that the 2 terminals are excluded from
both. Of the 7 terminals, 2 of them are not used..the ones that
correspond to the switch. And if memory serves me correct,
if you look inside the electrical connector on the wire loom,
you'll likely see that there's nothing to conduct electrons either
to or from the corresponding switch terminals. Unplug the connector
from the VAF, look inside the connector on the end of the wire loom
and you'll see 5 are used and 2 are blank.

So long story short, our cars don't use that switch.

Jamal.
Thank you. I did download the supplement but confess I didn't even think of looking in it.
Waiting for a new valve cover gasket and I noticed two cracks in my frame so now I'm off in that direction.
Thanks to all the help I received here I have the engine running like a raped Ape and I'm not having to tinker with or adjust something every time I get home.
I still like to read and look through the forum but my training wheels are off now and I'm doing ok.
Thank you Edd
