I have had my GTV 2.0 TS since july and have had a few minor niggles. I have just had the thermostat changed and this has stabilised the engine temp, however this seems to have affected the tick over which now stays at about 1500 RPM.
Can anyone help? I am unwilling to reset the ECU as I have a remap and dont know if this will be reset aswell?
Would be grateful for any help.[/QUOT
Sounds like a coincidence, first thing to try is give the idle actuator (idle control valve) on top of the throttle body a sharp tap with the plastic handle of a screwdriver whilst the engine is running, if the revs change it shows the actuator is sticking, the actuator is black plastic with a circular feature on it, held onto the throttle body with 2 screws, if it is sticking remove the actuator and flush it out with carb cleaner.
