    rolleyes Any advice would be great

    Hi Guys
    Got myself back in the Vauxhall trend again after being away on the "dark side" as someone said earlier...Had the Lexus,BMW,Merc twitch but its all cleared up now... Got myself back into a 52 Vectra Elite V6...well happy...


    Well happiest I've been for a while, it has a few issues most of which I can sort out with work colleagues as working for a main dealer can be handy and have its perks...brakes, slight oil leak from one of the rocker covers, stereos ******ed...but the one I'm worried about is its erratic idling.
    Most times when you start it and use it in the morning it's fine but once its been used for a while and you come to a stand still the revs go up too about 2000,2500 rpm and won't always come back down even after a flick of the accelerator...also the temp gauge takes forever to register, don't know if this is related to any of the above but any guidance would be great...is this a known problem and is it a easy fix ?


    Thanks in advance


    Mark
