Hey guys,

My car is idling funny, its like hunting up and down up and down, and if i rev it up sometimes it will die out.

Ive cleand the MAF sensor and it seems to work for about a day but then the problem is back again.

Clean the throttle body & clean the idle speed control motor with Carby cleaner.
I do this about 2 times per year.

This issue should be made a sticky thread :!:

I found my hunting was due to the EGR gasket leaking coolant into the plenum and in turn causing the hunting of the idle. If you haven't got the water hooked up to the EGR, please put it back on as you will overheat everything on the inlet side. The water is to keep it all cool.
