    code problems

    can anyone explain the symptoms of code p1631(spill valve relay) and p0370 (pump position). I have had the codes cleared and the fault light stays off, but the car still revs erraticly at low speeds (very hard to drive in traffic). the car is a 2001 17 dti astra. please help me before i go insane.

    ive just had my 2000 1.7 dti checked for faults and i also got the code p0370 pump position sensor invalid...

    when you say erratic revs, do they bounce abit when at idle,

    say between 750-800revs but quite fast?

    and if you let the car pull on its on in1st with no accelerator it judders due to the dodgy idle?

    re-solder it i reckon.

    iv had my fault codes cleared but the light came on 2 days later.

    so it will tell me which code is the most recent.

    if its the p0370 one, ill just get a recon ecu and hope it solves it.
