I was reading previous threads about TPS, CO2 sensors, hal sensor etc.
What is the correct trouble shooting order? Am I on the right track?
As has been said, it's not a choke as such, it's a simple fast idle.
Keep it simple - Just undo the big brass screws a half a turn each until you get it idling how you like.
If that sorts it then no need to worry over problems that don't exist.
