PostSubject: stalling sometimes   Sun Aug 22, 2010 6:10 am

my petrol 1.6L 16v comfort every now and then on start up has erratic idle for no more than 4/5 seconds to the point of nearly stalling this hadnt bothered me, until today took family out to town drove brill all the way there and back dropped them home and went to the chippy where the 3min drive it stalled at junctions 4 times. here is the list of new parts etc that has been fitted in the last 3 months.... o2 sensor, egr, new plugs, oil change and filter, fuel filter, air filter. i have put my op-com on it and no faults have come up. has any one got any clue what it might be.

thanks

rite i went on ebay and asked someone if they did a ICV and the reply i got was
Thanks for your enquiry.

Sorry to say the 1.6 doesn't have a serviceable idle control motor. The only way to replace this is by replacing the entire throttle body

is this true

many thanks
