Well, I'm finding out that owning a 107 offers that 'never a dull moment' experience. Now that I've gotten quite a bit of customization completed, my motor is now starting to idle rough. It's kind of surging between like 4-6k every few seconds consistantly. Also, when I accellerate (in any gear) it kind of runs rough (wobbly is the only word that describes it) until about 1500 rpm, then it is smooth. Almost like one cylinder is missing a few pops.

Anyone have any thoughts, experience, theories?

Plugs, wires, rotor, injectors, any of them checked?

The wrong oil weight may cause rough idle in older 560's if you have any small valve seal problems. If you are in warmer weather use 20W50. If you are losing oil this is the first place to look.

Hi All, well a just put in a set of new injectors and seals and badda bing-- she's idling and running fine all the way through the rpm's. Thanks to all for your suggestions and I hope someone will benefit from this thread in the future.
