When my 06 ford Fiesta 1.25 style gets warm, after driving about 20 miles When in traffic the rev counter gets erratic and drops well below the 1000 revs mark . Twice it has stalled when slowing down coming up to a junction, has anyone any ideas?

Its just past its MOT and I dont want to be spending more cash on it, (new car due 20th June ish!!!!!!) Then again i dont want to have an accident before the P/X ,as you lose the power steering and things.

After a bit of googling, it could be the idle air control valve and can be cleaned with WD40 or Redex ( whatever that is).

Does anyone know where this is?, what exactly is it? and is it difficult to clean?

I had this trouble with my all 53 plate corsa. I got told it was the idle control valve and that it needs a clean. I got told it sticks open and floods with air stalling the car.

No idea where it is etc :)

Happened again today, pulling up to a junction bit scary when you lose power steering. The cars getted P/X in a month just wanted a quick fix.
