    Idle Control Valve i believe, although not being mechanically minded, i could be wrong.

    Sure i've seen it in a guide somewhere where it was connected to or near the throttle body.

    Although i've been told on my 51-plate Z18XE that i don't actually have one & that i also don't have an EGR valve too, so, i dunno. Not sure if that's accurate info or not that i've been given.

    If it's jerking & what have you, i'd deffinately have a crack at cleaning the throttle body. Just wiping mine which was gunked out helped it a lot.

    Agreed. Give the throttle body a good clean. Maybe clean/replace the EGR valve. Will probably feel a whole lot better after
