idle and missing problems

hey guys, just a heads up for anyone whos having trouble with idle, throttle or missing engines etc, ive just had a heck of a problem with mine, but over looked the maf cause it looked all new and been replaced, turns out it was a cheap and nasty chinese copy, a proper bosch one made all the difference in the blink of an eye, so when your thinking new parts, i wouldnt buy any of these cheaper brands, but from what ive read in the last 2 weeks is that usually the same bosch part for an alfa is the same bosch part almost half price if its in vauxhall packaging.

hope this helps someone whos having some of the difficulties i did, and thanks to all who gave advice and joined in

Aye.. I recently replaced an Idle Control Valve in my 1.8 TS with a 30 cheapo part (dunno where it was made) compared to a 230 Bosch doodah. It fixed the problem but introduced a different one.

After I cleaned and re-fitted the old Bosch job (I needed to see the new one to realise where mine was carboned/gummed up) the car is back to normal...
