    Just Fitted new ICV - PROBLEMS!!

    I have done the paperclip test on my car as the Engine Management light was on. The fault code pointed towards the Idle Control valve so rather than cleaning the old one, i just bought a new one. Just fitted it about 10 mins ago and now the car cuts out on idle...i start the engine, the revs stay at 1,000 for a couple of seconds and then just drop and my engine cuts out??

    Please Help!! (i am going away on monday so need to have my car working)
