Esteem 1.6 16valve first start and run
#1
Seems like it runs ok, but maybe a vacuum leak somewhere. It also started whining a bit as you can hear - I'm not sure what that is. I also need to make sure the coolant is going all thru the engine.

thanks for sharing such a great video.  on engine stand is for sure cool.
the IAC will run fast idle 1500RPM is common unless colder outside,  2000possilbe if super cold. 0C or 32F? or lower?

Got a PCV valve installed and it runs alot better now. Idles around proper speed with slight movement up and down. Maybe a small vac leak somewhere. I let it run for about 30 mins and it ran good. Almost ready for its new home. Will replace some hoses that are old, maybe feel an oil leak from my modified oil pan and cut out some wires before it goes into its new home (the buggy).

Engine seems to be running ok so I'm trying to trim the harness to get rid of the clutter that I don't need. Disassembled the steering column to remove the ignition switch. Will take a look to see what I can remove next.
