    Engine Problems

    Hi,

    When the car is idling the revs occasionally drop to about 250Rpm,

    When this happens the engine cooling light comes on and then it's as if the car is about to stall.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    only have experience of the X20XEV which was prone to ICV issues. I'm sure some zlet owners will help soon
