Hello All,
Further to my last, car still running OK. Worth the time cleaning / adjusting.
GOOD LUCK

Hello All,
Further to my last - for info, ICV/throttle body off again, battery disconected also. On reassembly I adjusted a sping damper fitted below throttle valve actuator, this cannot be seen in situ' . with a cut 1/8 th w spanner it can be fine tuned in situ' (now we know its there) Took me a while to fine tune, very small turns is all req'd , adjust- take run - adjust - take run, BUT, it seems to have worked.
Pedal switch was a red herring I think.
I will keep you posted, and my fingers crossed!!

GOOD LUCK

Hello All,
Cleaned throttle body, bit oily, restarted ok ran for a while then raced up + down 1500 ish. fault code was throttle position idle not learned. starts ok , can hold at about 1000 rpm on foot but will not hold tickover.
How can I get ECU to relearn tickover??

THANKS

i would start with cleaning the icv

Hello All,
Thanks Mintalkin, yes, I think I will start at icv. Looks a bit arkward seems to be encased in throttle housing, but needs must!
At moment, I have disconected clutch pedal switch, locked in engaged position,it hasn't cut out in 4 days! Throttle occasionally drops to about 600 no stall so far.
The best thing is it keeps wife off my back!!! Keep you posted
THANKS, GOOD LUCK
