Well Happy Idle with Air Cond


Ive just bought a 2001 GTV 2 litre and it doesnt like to idle with the Air cond on. It Idles at 800 then almost drops downs to zero before the electronics picks the revs up again and brings it back to 800. It feels like my old Alfa GTV of the 1980s where they used to just stop and stall with the Air cond on with Carburettors and no electronic controls like today. Is this normal? (Its done 60,000 Km)

Re: Idle with Air Cond

Doubt it's normal. I've read a lot about the cleaning of throttle valves or 'extra air' valves around here. Might be worth searching the threads onthe subject. If the heater/air con seems to work normally then I suppose we rule out the fact that the ECU hasn't noticed that the A/C is on??
