Thread: Engine dying

    I still think idle control valve is at fault as the only thing that can make the engine rev up like that is something staying open enough to let the air in to do that which can only be the throttle butterfilies or the butterfly inside the IACV

    Excellent. Thanks. Is it easy to fit or a garage job?

    I'm afraid I don't know. I looked into this when mine had idling problems but it turned out to be the throttle position sensor. There are some new old stock Bosch ones in the states for over two hundred quid!

    It's 2 screws on a bracket to undo, pull off the rubber pipes, unplug & it's all off
