    Default Engine Timing/Idle

    Hi all, my 1.8 52 plate SXi, when i pull up at a junciton, or even when i just start the engine or whatever, when its idling its idling quite low, about 600 revs, and just feels like ive just started to lift the clutch..

    how do i go about making it idle higher..?

    they may charge you £30 or so, I'd ring them and ask. With it being all electronic i'm not sure there is an idle valve anymore? Anyone?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    it doesn't sound like.. sticky idle valves make them cut out, not idle low... and as Bigsig said, around the minimum charge for tech2 to do it, so £45ish quid should see it put right.
