Hey guys, I was having loads of ICV problems... Stalling on idle, revs fluctuating up and down etc.. So I took it to my mate who's got a garage.. and he took out the throttle body and cleaned it with petrol.. We left it to dry for a few hours and fit everything back together... The stalling seems to have stopped so I think that's sorted.. But the engine management light is now on.. Is there any reason for this?
He's asked me to bring it back on monday to get rid of the light but i'm wondering why the light is on in the first place? Is there any way to check? Is it the pedal test or something?
Also, after going for a quick blast, there is a slight cut in power at about 2000rpm.. why is this after we've just cleaned the throttle body?
The car in question is a 1999 Astra 2.0 SRi (dont know what engine code that is?)
