    idle control valve location

    hi guys

    i think my idle control valve has gone, car does not idle right and you need to put your foot on the gas pedal to get it to start.

    i wanna try clean it out 1st see if that works but i dont know what it looks like or where it is located.....


    can any one show me a pic of what it is

    or tell me where it is?

    thanks

    stop lookiing

    its a Z series engine - thus it doesnt have one

    idling issues could be a multitude of things - have u read the fault codes irrespective if the light is on or not

    could be the AFM or could just be the throttle body all gunked up - whip it off and soak it in petrol and make it nice n shiney again (THIS IS A MUST IF YOUVE NEVER DONE IT YET!)

    why not try the earth crimp if it aint been done yet - http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...d.php?t=117185
