When this happens the engine will rev (approx 2500rpm) without acceleration. If I put it into gear it will drive. Once the car is turned off...

If I don't hold the acceleration pedal, it just dies. I suspect a bad IAC valve, but I'm unsure how to test it. 2) Rough running. At (supposed) idle...

    I have recently bought a 1997 Trafic for spares or repair which has the 2165cc petrol engine with injection. It is running very rich, to the point where it can die sometimes. It seems worse on idle, but I think this is just that it can cope better at higher revs. There is no diagnostic port as I...
