    breather pipes?

    hope somebody could help me here, every time i drop my clutch (ie at lights) my revs drop and my car nearly stalls, somebody at work mentioned about the breather pipes might be blocked... - we've had a quick look under the bonnet but couldnt find them, could somebody give me a detailed description of where they are, i've heard theres 2, 1 near the rocker cover and 1 by the manifold...???

    Car is a Astra Coupe, year 2000 1.8 16v.

    Any help appreciated...

    Thanks in advance!

    Topic's been covered before. Do a search.

    But its most likely to be the Idle Control Valve.
    It just needs a clean.

    You can also check the EGR valve.

    They should be on the back left had side of the cam cover - one about the diameter of your thumb and one a bit smaller.

    Also while you've got the bonnet up, give the ICV a clean as this is also a very likely culprit for the symptoms you describe - see the "How-To's" on how to do this

    Thanks for replying.

    Will check the breather pipes now, then tonight I will have a go at the ICV.

    Cheers again.

    PS. Keep it real.
