Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Idle hunting I have an alfa romeo 156 with a bosch throttle body and ecu. When at idle the revs will fluctuate around the idle speed of 1000rpm some times stabalising at incorrect speeds, some times continuously rising and falling. I've read of similar problems in older bosch units but the fix refered to adjustments made that mine will not allow, various screws and such absent presumably because mine is a little newer. Can you help me?

I wish to adjust the idle tickover speed a wee bit on a 2007 Ford Transit 2.2 Duratorq engine. It is currenlty ticking over at approx 800 rpm and is hunting at this rev. If I could raise it a wee as I do...


First ensure that the throttle interior is really clean, a surface layer of grime can upset the ECU's ability to meter and govern the air entering the engine. If the throttle body interior is found to be really oily and dirty check on the idle air control valve and make sure that it too is cleaned up. Next put the ignition switch in position 2 (on, but no start) and depress the accelerator fully and release. If there is an issue with the throttle position sensor this procedure can help the ECU relocate the throttle plate position. Start the engine and if it is still hunting locate the air mass meter (AMM) on the air ducting immediately next to the air filter and disconnect the electrical connection. Does this remove the hunting aspect?... the rev speed might change but for the moment concentrate on the evenness of the tick-over. If the idle is even when the AMM is disconnected but hunts when connected then look at replacing your AMM. Try spraying the AMM with no residue electrical cleaning spray to see if this improves matters.

Revs stuck 2000 , once passed that drives fine otherwise kangaroo jumps. its a alfa romeo 156 twin


Could be your throttle body. Check for any parts that may restrict your throttle body causing it to stick when giving it gas or letting off. Check that there is nothing blocking your throttle cable by tracing it by hand and inspecting around it.

Car cutting out from cold start


You need a 10 mil and 8 mil spanner, carb cleaner and mabie some wd40.
Remove the big hose which goes from the throttle body to the air filter housing. Under the throttle body there is a idle control valve, unplug it, spray some wd40 on the 8mil bolts and take them off. Clean the idle control valve and housing and anywhere else which looks dirty, dry it with a lint free cloth and then put everything back on.
remove the battery negative terminal and leave it off for 30 minutes, this will reset the ecu to factory settings.

On the top of the throttle body there is a black circular rubber screw cover, take that off and there should be a plastic screw.

Connect your battery and start your engine, unscrew the idle speed control (plastic screw) so it revs at 2000rpm cold. When the temp needle reached the middle so it revs at 1000rpm hot.

This should solve the problem, if you drive around and find that you in 4th gear, with your foot off the accelerator and the idle is going up and down madly then the idle control valve is worn out and it needs replacing. Cost around £125 on ebay.

My 156 t spark has suddenly started running at 2000rpm


You either have an 'idle speed' control problem controlled by one air valve or, you have an air leak in your 'inlet' / induction side of your engine.
Look for an air leak first.
Hope this helps.
