Default Need Help

I have an 85 gt. When it idles it idles rough and when it warms up I have to keep my foot on the gas or it dies. It will restart without a problem but when on the road slowing down or shifting I have to throttle the gas. Any suggestions? Carb was serviced(not fully rebuilt), fuel tank cleaned new fuel filter and lines. new plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotary button, new wires, radiator flushed and filled. I don't know what else to do. It has a new wiring harness as well.

Could still be the carb. Check real good for any broken vac lines or vac leaks. They will wreak havoc on idle as well. I just finished dealing with my bronco having these issues as well as the primary jets on my carb were clogged. Without primaries it won't idle. Secondaries will supply fuel and keep it running with your foot on it.

Thanks BabyGT I will take it back to the shop that did the work and see what they tell me. This is my first fox and carb set up I have an 02 gt as well in pa. This carb system is tricky. I reside in the great bridge area.

Thanks guys for the advice on what was wrong. I got it fixed today turns out one of my vacuum lines was not connected to its port. She is running good and strong now. Ready for the road.

Sweet man, and my dad is from great bridge lol. As a precaution I have small zip ties and a tool that pulls them tight around vac connections that don't have a good flare on the nipple.

Exclamation Reset window after battery replacement.

I tried to re-calibrate my window, but when I hold the button to put the window up it bounces back down until you can only see about 3 inches of window. Anyone help me?
