	Last I heard of this, it was a faulty fuel injector. My car will
idle ruff for 60 sec (especially in the winter) after starting her up.
	I'm still trying to find someone that knows about ultrasonic
cleaning of "einspritzers" (ie where? how much? does it work?). I have
old `86 injectors waiting to go on my `84 but I'd really like them
cleaned first.
