Hi All its my first post here.

Can you help me with a problem?

I have owned my flash Ghia X Now for just over a year or so, and have been experiencing "Cutting Out" or Stalling Problems, say for instance waiting at Traffic Lights you know that sort of nature it would have a habit of Cutting out or even if I'm slowing Down its driving me crazy.

I took her to my local Garage who they its a very common problem for the Idle Speed Control Valve to go ippy, its had 2 New valves put on its not doing it as much now but she still ocationaly cuts out if you know what I mean!

Apart from that shes goes like a Rocket!

I hope you can help.

Many thanks

Rob
