I posted about the issues my EF is having with idling not so long ago, it seems they are gradually becoming more evident.
For the past week or so the idle has been wandering i.e. absolutely no throttle applied, yet idle going up and down 200rpm or so by itself. This is in normal weather, and all plugs and leads are fine (checked them). Premium fuel too.
I'm going to be getting a new accelerator cable installed hopefully sometime next week (finally get round to it), however i'm not sure if this will fix it.
The TPS is relatively new - it was replaced in March of this year, so im tending to think that it is not causing the problem. I'm going to take it off and check it and clean it tomorrow though. I'm also going to try a full ECU reset, and perhaps reset base idle too - so i need to know what it is.
So, apart from the cable, is there anything else i can/should be checking?
well when u turn the stering wheel the pressure in the rack opens that switch this tell the computer there is extra load on the engine, and so it wacks the idle up a lill just when the stering is turrned , this is to stop the car from stalling. When these seitches play up the idle hunts because the switch is opening and closing even though the stering isnt being turned....
