  1. Car Revving/accelerating Itself!

    'Automatic' revving at idle is a classic sign of idle valve sticking. What happens is that the idle valve sticks too far open, producing a high idle rpm. However, with your foot off the throttle the ecu sees the revs are high and assumes that the car is in motion but with no throttle (ie slowing down).So it cuts out the injectors as it normally would in that situation. This of course causes the revs to drop to normal idle, at which point the injectors are switched on again. But the idle valve is still stuck open, so the revs rise to a high idle again and the whole thing repeats. Hope this makes sense. Happened to my old Cavalier.
  2. Oil Catch Can For 1.0 L

    I would consider fitting one to any direct injection petrol engine, in view of the inlet valve carbon contamination that seems to be a potential issue with this design.
