Re: lumpy tickover on a V6 Q system
My V6 was a little lumpy on tickover for ages, not horrible, just, well, not smooth.
And then one sunny day the cam belt was changed. I ruefully commented that its a lot of money when you don`t actually notice any driving difference and the mechanic said that actually I would because the timeing was out a little and he had corrected it. Lo and behold I now have a very sweet tickover, the first for years.
Its up to you but I`d say if it wasn`t like that before it went in then the timing hasn`t been done properly.
