    dodgy idle

    hi folks i'm having problems with the idle on my gsi. when its at its worst seems to idle between 500-750, and feels like its gonna cut out. on a good day it flickers a little bit but the dash lights flicker at the same time any ideas?

    would the earth mod maybe solve this? changed my plugs bout 6months ago for the cossie ones so don't think its them

    Cleaning the throttle body can help improve you idle, its worth doing as its an easy job.
