    Default Vectra 3.2 Idle issues when hot and stalling

    Hi all, I have a 2002 Vectra 3.2 GSi, just piced it up cheap but has issues, when cold it starts straight up idles nicely, leave it to run upto running temperature as it hits 90 the idle increases to about 1200rpm then it will just cut out, you cant restart it until it cools down a bit, then the same again as it hits temperature just dies, drive wise the thermostat is sticking open slightly ( another job to do ) so temp runs cool so doesnt stall at all, plugged it into a code reader nothing, plugged into opcom and nothing on there either, any help or ideas would be appreciated, it doesnt miss either, Ive done 150 miles in the car returning 32mpg and smooth, car is standard apart from scorpion exhaust

    thats what Im thinking, doesnt look like its been maintained very well for at least a couple of years in my opion, the only thing that made me thing was the temperature related issue, once hitting 90 it dies and will not re-start until the temperature has dropped below 90, then hit 90 again dies, Im going to strip it down ICV to see what it looks like
