I have been driving my 2001 1.6sxi fine for 2 months, but the other day during my daily drive, the engine just cut out. It just about started again, but was very chuggy to work, then back home.
The trip is about 30miles round trip.
The coolant sensor came on, so I replaced that, and it worked fine for a week. I got a mechanic friend to show me how to clean the idle control valve, and it now starts, but it wont Idle consitantly. I get power as normal, but the idle drops to 5000revs and then bouces back up to about 12/15 then goes back.
The coolant sensor light pops up the most when it stalls, and I am looking for a few suggestions on the way forward.
As a side note, my exhaust is blowing a bit, and I am getting it replaced at the weekend, after I have had it diagnosed.
