    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Think its just the car stopping it stalling. Mine tick over at about 650-700 rpm, on a hill I can put it in first, take my foot off the accelerator and it will pull itself up doing about 1000rpm. Alternately your TB may be sooted up, causing the TB not to close properly and letting more air in. If your tick over is low like mine then I would go for the first option.
