rough idle until warmed up, bad gas mileage

Postby safari kev [OP] » August 31st 2015, 10:04pm

My 95 safari has started giving me problems lately. It will idle rough and try to stall randomly, but moreso when putting it in gear or taking off. fuel mileage has been 14-15 for the past month (was previously around 20 mpg consistently ). van has new EGR valve, thermostat. Plugs and wires and cap and rotor are maybe 2 years old. van runs fine once it is up to operating temp. it does seem slightly down on power though. any thoughts?
