CLEANING THE INLET CONTROL VALVE/ THROTTLE/ IDLE CONTROL/ BUTTERFLY VALVE<br />
<br />
SYMPTOMS<br />
Unsteady and too low idle rpm cycling between 700 to 500rpm. No power at tickover as engine is struggling and it's easy to stall. You put the aircon on just to bump up the tickover a bit. Tricky

Re: Cleaning Your Inlet Control Valve

The examnier read 'Throttle Body' for my fault and my car doesn't start first time and it lost power when going at 70mph. Plus Engine fault lit for a week now.

It doesn't stall though ot have rev issue. Is cleaning it as above unlikey to help. Garage have said gven symtoms and examiner I need a new throttle body.

Any advice? Thanks. Also I notice above say harder to get to on 1.4, where is it anyone and how difficult to reach?

Re: Cleaning Your Inlet Control Valve

Clean the throttle body mate. Cleaning the valve will most likely not solve this issue.

Next time you have in issue not related to the inlet control valve, please start a new thread within the Stilo section. Unfortunately not many people are subscribed to this guide.

If you still have this problem, we can continue the conversation there.

Cheers.

Re: Cleaning Your Inlet Control Valve

I have a W reg Bravo that is stalling at junctions/roundabouts. Is this process the same?

Re: Cleaning Your Inlet Control Valve

It should be, if it's petrol. Although there may be several other factors that cause the problems.

Re: Cleaning Your Inlet Control Valve

Old thread I know, but interested to know if this always works fine for everyone?

Since doing this, my car hasn't been right (hanging revs, lumpy on the overrun). I've done relearns, even had the throttle body changed, and still can't cure the problem.

Is it possible that the car isn't relearning correctly?

The guide was excellent btw, and steadied up my lumpy idle
