    Mine tends to rev to about 1000rpm and slows back down when you stop but all the vauxhalls I have driven have done the same

    my old 2.2 used to do something similar, when idle at the lights the revs would bounce slowly and make the engine would make a brum brum brum brum sound and make me look like a tit she's gone now thank god!!

    I have a 2003 astra 1.7dti and I get the same problem, revs itself at times especially in 1st gear and reverse, and when im parking the car. I have done the pedal test and there are no faults so I guess its just normal a bit annoying at times.

    My 2000 Astra 1.7 DTI does the same thing. When in 1st gear and moving slowly (about 1000-1500 RPM) and step off the gas pedal and push the clutch, it revs itself up another 100-200 RPM and then goes back to 800. I also thought it was some kind of an error but it seems that it's normal.
