hi everyone, another blooming problem.

my lag 1.9dci has a very uneven idle at about 850 rpm
the fluctuations dont show up much on the rev counter maybe 50 rpm but sounds more, along with a strong exhaust smell but no extra smoke.

if i disconnect the egr wire the revs settle to a smooth 900 rpm. across the driving range all is fine like this.
but i still find that sometimes when a pull up to a junction the revs will drop to a laboured 600 - 700 rpm then pops back to 900, i have also had 2 or 3 stalls at junctions for no apparent reason.

i know this is probably a sensor fault, but wondered if anyone has had similar issues. and if they could point me in a direction of where to check.

i am still trying to connect to the cars computer but not having much luck

many thanks

thanks for the reply madnoel10

i cleaned the egr valve and manifold about 5 months ago, i followed the informative instructions listed by another user cant remember their name, it should still be fairly clear as i dont hang about on the road.

i will have a look into this anti stall switch.

thanks
