In Topic: Erratic Revs When Cold With Added Whining Noise!

a whistling noise could be down to air escaping with it idling open the bonnet and see if you can track it down



Thanks for the advise fella. All sorted. the garage finally saw sense (and my mad eyes!) and changed the ICV. Suprise - suprise, the problem ceased...

in simple terms no its not the charcoal cannister the high revs could be the idle control valve obviously youre old one didnt do it so a simple swap with that idle control valve would sort it also the throttle position sensor could be sticking



thanks for the reply.
If its the ICV; is it easy to change? Would this make the whistling / whining noise? It only happens when i 1st start the car up. Why would this be? Cheers peeps........
