    Unhappy help engine reving at 1500 rpm at startup

    can someone please help me find out why my astra sxi 1.6 16v 1999 revs at 1500 rpm for about 3 - 4 mins when i start it up.

    if i blip the throttle to about 3500 rpm it sorts itself out to normal about (800 rmp)

    ive tried cleaning the throttle bodies out with carb cleaner, an all thats done is make it rev better when i put the foot down.

    please help

    thats what i was thinking untill some people said if it was the idle speed control valve then it would be cousing problems when im driving but it doesnt. i also got told that if it was that then the evil light will come on.

    they should only do it for a couple of second but not for 3 - 4 mins. if i try to set of with it still reving, it just jerks in every gear untill i give it a good high rev

    Normally for a couple of seconds, and not usually at that higher revs i wouldn't have thought, mine hangs around 1000-1200k for about 5 secs
