    need advice

    ok today i got up early to try and fit an idle problem what it is once engine has warmed up it starts to hunt and stall so this morning i have cleanded the throttle body and took the egr valve off gave them all a good clean but no joy,, any other ideas???

    secondly the brakes im sure need bleeding as pedal seems to be very hard and you seem to have to put alot of weight on the pedal to stop.. i have changed all discs and pads but problem is still there, so i think it def needs bleading but never blead a car before had no need, is there a faq on it or can someone tell me some steps i think i found the nipple on the caliper..

    You bleed the brakes cause the pedals soft and spongy (as in your squeezing the trapped air) not your pedal being hard.

    well maybe i should say hard it prob is spongey, just seems not enough pressure is going to the calipers to slow me down.
