    Default The man who can

    Comes up trumps again.

    Asked Mr GSi3.2 for some advice about sorting the 'snot rocket' out. Been having a problem with it cutting out when slowing to a stop and the engine 'racing' to find revs at idle. Armed with Mark's guide and a can of carb cleaner stripped out the Idle Control Valve (ICV) and gave it a thourough clean. The throttle butterfly was choked up and causing it to stick so that got a good seeing to. Also found the crank case breather was nearly blocked so that's been done too.

    Results? WOW, like a different car, smooth as a baby's bum now. Idles perfect and throttle response is crisp. Feels like I've gained a few horses too...must take it down to Regals and see if it's over the 200bhp yet!


    Oh and changed the plugs while I was under the hood
