Hi everyone, I have a 1999 mk4 astra sport and have a few little problems that need sorting out...
Engine idle randomly fluctuates and sometimes stalls when coming to a stop at junctions, traffic lights etc. The engine is a X18XE1 as the AFM was changed last year I suspect that the idle control valve maybe the cause of the idling issues and the EGR is responsible for the engine cutting out.
Service is due so I will take that opportunity to clean the throttle body if need be.
The ABS & TC light seems to have a will of its own, sometimes coming on as normal when starting the engine then going out. Other times it will stay on or come on whilst I'm driving. Switching the engine off and-re starting will sometimes clear the light. I'm thinking one of the hub sensors is at fault, how do I find out which one has failed.
Another problem I have is the that the rear callipers keep sticking every time I use the handbrake. I have had the callipers off several times to free them before but I'm tired of having to keep doing this every time!
I believe this is common with the Bosh callipers and that vaux went to Lucas callipers. Is it possible to fit these callipers to my car and are they available as a kit/upgrade?
So does anybody care to offer any advise on the above issues? How much am I looking at for each of the parts and where would be the best place to get them?
