    dump valve

    can some one show me a pic of the stand dump valve? im getting some turbo chatter, so just want to see if i can see if its ok, i have heard they are prone to leaking. would this cause turbo chatter?

    cheers Nick.

    your fault could be down to heat soak.

    the coil pack is something i have changed in the last few months so doubt its that. i had a play with the amf wires and they felt a little loose i pushed them back in and it was ticking over 10 time better, it didnt cut out once. im gonna be tacking it out later so ill see how it is then. but the turbo chatter just wont go away.

    oh and the idle valve, did i read right that its part of the trottle body and you have to change the whole lot?
