Well it has been a few weeks.
I have had this ASTRA 1.8 X18XEI for about 2 years. Never had any issues with it. TILL NOW
I have been doing a lot of reading and spending.
I have the Idle cut out issue.
Engine starts fine when cold, when it gets warm after about 5 minutes the engine cuts out. The amber light with the star lights up and fans kick in.
When engine is running Idle is under 1000 before it cuts out.
At this point the car will not start, turns ok but nothing you have to wait for about 15minutes till the fans turn off and amber light goes out. Then the engine will start for about 5 minutes.
I have the Haynes manual.
I have tech2 (Ebay) no fault codes are on the ECU.
I have cleaned the MAF with special cleaner spray. I have checked the Yellow wire connectivity ok. I have a new MAF sensor on it way.
I have replaced EGR valve
I have replaced Coil pack.
I have replace fuel filter.
I have fully cleaned throttle body.
I have tested the O2 sensor. ok
I have tested the Temp sensor ok, gut the temp gauge never moves thinking the engine is to cold at this point.
I am looking at replacing the relay just in case.
Have I missed anything ? I did not want to get to ECU stage yet. But looks like the next option.
I think it a case of beer for that special someone that resolves this, it driving me nuts.
