PostSubject: stalling   Thu Aug 26, 2010 5:23 am

i kno there is a topic on this just a few posts downt he page, but i thought i bring it up again with my story.

So i was driving and car stalled at a junction, also it judders as i take my foot off the gas at about 40mph ish.
ive been lookling around and was told it could be the idle control valve, (give it a good clean before buying a new one, even if it sorts the problem temporarily. and also to clean out some of the breather pipes around the throttle body, not sure which ones tho. Im sure many people have had this problem and that it could be a number of things.

ALSO, just had all my rear braking system done and everything time i turn a sharp left, the handbrake light comes on and when i straighten out the wheel it goes off. what could that be.

I've just started to get this problem too. Owners manual says this light will come on when the brake/clutch fluid reservoir goes low but i've checked and it's still just below max. Strange how it only comes on with sharp LEFT turns though.

Sorry this isn't a solution but i could do with an answer too!!

my brake fluid was just above minimum, so i thought that where im turning left, the fluid is swishing to one side and maybe triggering the low fluid sensor (if theres one in there), i topped it up but havnt seen the light come on, yet.

So is the stalling due to the EGR valve?


im gonna take it off clean it and all the breather pipes and throttle body and see what happens over the weekend.
