    Help me fix my morning cut out problem please!!

    Ok - the car - M reg mk3 1995 Astra 1.4spi

    The Symptoms - Car starts fine, but if i drive off then need to stop within a few minutes, ie at bottom of road, the revs will drop to nothing and engine dies.

    At the moment i need to brake and keep the accelerator down at the same time to keep the revs up!!

    I changed the radiator water temp sensor, but no change to the problem??

    Any ideas guys??

    Does the car have a throttle body, if so, might be worth cleaning it. Is the auto choke working?

    From what I've heard, you need to get the throttle body and idle control valve cleaned. Seems a common problem, one which I need to get sorted soon as it's getting worse.
