The Efi system fitted to these is fairly crude ,but you should still be able to adjust the co to less than 3%.Start by checking the vacuum pipe that runs from the inlet manifold to the Map sensor on the bulkhead.Some models have a plastic restrictor in the pipe,if yours does ,then make sure it is fitted the correct way round(should have "eng" to engine side).Also check the throttle switch adjustment.There should be a faint click as the throttle linkage comes to the rest position(idle).At the battery neg terminal there are a bunch of small brown wires.Make sure these are clean and tight to earth.As for a faulty Ecu,I would say unlikely,but the map sensor may be suspect.hth
