166 2 steps forward and one back

had the fan belt and tensioner changed today, but its still whistling at 3000 revs. on my way to the garage the temp gauge did not rise beyond 60 in a thirty minute drive heater, worked fine but idle was high aproaching 3000 revs when i started and restarted the car, its like an old fashioned choke stuck in the open position.

this problem with temp guage is new but i have had intermittent proplem with high idle. but the guage was fine after i collected the car temp was at about 80 - 85.

a confusing car, the mechanic also told me i needed front upper and lower wishbones. has any body bought the cheapish ones from germany genuine but as good so they say?

Re: 166 2 steps forward and one back

hope you get it sorted soon dude...

high idle could be down to

knackered MAF
Sticky throttle valve
dodgy lambda
