Question about Opel Astra

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Opel Astra 1.6ie. The cars pull is sluggish and idle was inconsistent. I replaced the idle control valve and took the throttle and gave it a good clean with carb cleaner. The idle appears to be constant at 1000 - 1500rpm but the car is still not pulling properly and tends to want to die on cold starts and needs to be kept at a high rev to get going. Please advise

SOURCE: 1995 honda accord ex...car idles up and down when

There is a coolant passage that goes to the idle control system. The idle control itself is not bad. Cleaning this passage will make it normal again. I have fixed a 95 honda accord this way, and a 97 honda accord. You will need to remover the whole assembly. Actually the whole rapair doesn;t need parts so thats good news for you. Be carefull since the idle control is made of aluminum, and can be damaged easily. I damaged the one I was working on, thankfully I also have an aluminum mig welder so I was able to repair it like new.

I suggest you clean the throttle body and the idle speed control air bypass valve. Use only throttle valve spray cleaner, not carburetor spray as it will damage the special coatings. Since you gave no make, mode or year and engine that is about all I can tell you.
