Hi All.

After now confirming that I am addicted to solving probs myself (new slave cylinder fitted last month). I now have a problem with erratic idling. I had this prob about a year ago and had the airflow meter replaced which at the time cured it. This seems to have started again since I fitted the new slave cylinder. Is this possibly a coincidence?. I have also noticed that the transmssion light stays on now which did'nt happen before. I am aware there a dozens of things that can cause this issiue but a few ideas a newbie could check would be appreciated.

Cheers:thumbs:

Hi & welcome

Erratic idling is a recurring issue on the forum. I would suggest you do a search on the topic there is some extensive and very useful guidance. Among others the following could be the cause:
- Faulty air flow meter (as you mentioned)
- Faulty throttle position pot/idle control valve
- Faulty lambda sensor
- Leaks on the induction system

Probably some others that I have missed!!

It would also help to know which engine you have - the alloy top or the plastic top

Good luck.

Ok.

Appreciate your feedback. Incidently the Engine has an alloy top. I better get cracking =).

Cheers.
