Idle & cutting out
Laguna II 2001 1.6 petrol: Problem, when outside temp is below 15 deg engine rarely cuts out and idle speed in the main stays between 600 - 750 rpm, when outside temp goes above 15 deg idle speed can drop between 450 - 600 rpm and sometimes cuts out when foot taken off accelerator. I had a starting problem at the same time but this was cured (thanks to this forum) by cleaning the
sensor. When idle speed drops to under 450 rpm and is in danger of cutting using the accelerator sometimes controls it at 750 - 800 rpm but sometimes it just goes erratic going from 1000+ - 400 rpm and cannot be controlled.
My local garage have put on diagnistics and it is not coming up with a fault but thought it might be the idle control valve but I don't thing this model has one, I was thinking of replacing the
sensor but replacing sensors until faults are found can prove expensive.
Currently in snowy101's garage:
