Thumbs Up 1 Down 1 To Go!!

A week or so ago I posted a thread on here (Problems Problems Problems!) where my 156 1.8 (1999) was not picking up speed at 4000RPM, irratic idling and stalling when approaching junctions, roundabouts etc. Thank you all for help, yesterday I replaced the AMF and most of the problems have been cured.

However the irratic idling is still there. I have read on other threads about a "whirr clicking" sound which is what I hear if I have the car running and the bonnet raised. The thread mentions resetting the "buttefly"!! or something. Could this be anything to do with it? What is this butterfly? Are there diagrams of how to reset it manually without software??

Thanks in advance.

Re: 1 Down 1 To Go!!

Gazza82 has a manual for reseting the throttle valve thingy.... I've done it a few times and it has worked for me when it comes to jumpy idle
