Hi folks. Have a '97 fez with the petrol endura engine that stalls, say when the revs drop and you approach a roundabout. Not that often, maybe couple of times a week. I've been told it's nearly always the idle control valve, and the recommendation for a tempory cure was to clean it. It has made no difference, do you think I should still take a gamble and buy a new one?
Thanks in advance for ant help.

Hi chas,

If itís not expensive it's might worth your while changing that part at least it eliminates it if the problem still occurs, we had a problem with our focus the revs kept creeping up to 3500rpm when idle we ended up changing various components till we got the right part, trial and error I suppose? :unsure:

Hi sara, guess you're right, that's the way to go. Will look into replacing that.
Thanks for your reply, hope you have a lovely weekend.
