i have been noticing lately that when i come to a set of lights and come to a complete stop that it has been at bit lumpy. and the revs never seem to stay constant, and yesterday it acutally stalled on me!!!(its an auto!!!) so i have been getting into the habit of chucking it into neutral and it idles s**t loads better...does any one know what the problem may be and how do i fix it?

cheers

My EA did this for a bit... and i think had something to do with the Idle speed (timing or whatever its call) you can adjust it. My uncle did mine for me as i am mechanically handicapped lol

its called idle speed control solenoid. detach it from the throttle body and clean it with a carb spray cleaner. My previous EB did the same and sometimes dies when reversing. found out the ISC was almost completely blocked with carbon. Best to detach the solenoid from the valve body when cleaning as it gives you better access to remove gunk.

Its just as bad, it hasnt helped me in the slightest. i took it off sprayed it with heaps of the carby cleaner and it is still as rough as guts!

i was thinking that maybe my oxy sensor may be gone????

would the engine running too rich cause it to do this???

any help is muchly appreciated cheers
