Idle setting problem

My idle screw doesn't seem to want to consistently return all the way to the idle bar (the stop for the idle screw) on a 4.2L YJ. Does anybody know of a reason as to why it wont return all the way? does it need greasing? new springs?

*More information*
This happened when I went to turn down the idle, it had been idling at around 1200 rpms and wanted something more around the 800 rpm range. When I screwed down the idle screw it still returns to the 1200 rpm range because the screw isn't pulled all the way to touch the stop plate.

Thanks!

can you push on it to make it touch the stop plate? if so then maybe a new spring or adjust it for more tension.....if not then something else is interfearing with it.....

Sorry but your posts just don`t make sense.

You state you have a 91 YJ but in your profile you call it a 4.2.
The two engines 4.0 and 4.2 are two different animals .....Thus the engine controls are two totally different between the years.

The 4.0 (standard in 91 and up) is an OBD 1 fuel injected.
The 4.2 (standard 87-90) is a Renix (Renault and Bendix) controlled system with a Carter carburetor.

What do you have ? If you don`t know at least post a picture and we can figure it out.

OK, then is it a RENIX or OBD1 controlled ?

Or is it a stand alone carb/distributor set up ?

If the latter then what carb and dist ?

Sorry to ask so many questions but the JF wrecking crew can`t give you good advice if we don`t know the game.

Reply here and fill out your profile with the information for future reference.
