    confused 2000 1.8 sxi idling problem

    does anyone have any idea why my vectra runs perfect until i come to a stop when it wll then "hunt" with the revs dropping to near stall, then shoot up to around 1000rpm a few times before steadying itself after 10 or so seconds? I have just bought the car and i know the battery isnt exactly full of life but manages to start. Thanks!!!

    Assuming it hasnt got an air leak I would say remove and clean the throttle body.
    Simple job and most likely to be the cause imo

    my '99 vec B 1.8 (X18XE1 engine) also showed the same symptoms. A clean of the throttle body cleared mine - simple job as well.
