    x18xe1 running rough on idol and in general help!

    Cars a 1.8 16v x18xe1 having a few propbs with it hopefully someone can point me in the right direction to get it sorted.

    Well the cars been serviced 2,000 miles ago and had a new clutch and thrust bearing the same time, since then the cars running rough on idol feels really lumpy and when first started in the morning when the engines cold it misses a bit i touch the accelerator and the revs drop and it struggles to keep running. when the cars warmed up it does not do this only on a cold start. When idoling the just feels rough in general.

    Please help this is really geting on my nerves and making driving the astra unpleasant.

    I was thinking it could be, EGR valve, Air flow meter, Clutch position sensor, Coil pack one of them maybe????

    I would have a good check around the inlet manifold area to make sure there's no vacuum pipes off , seeing as the problem started as soon as it came from the garage there's a good chance they have left something off or knocked something off
