    Default 406 ST idle issues

    I dont remember being mean to the bloody thing - why is it causing me so much stress at the moment...

    Anyway, now it wont idle properly. Pull up to lights, drop it into neutral and the motor drops way down to ~400rpm, sometimes stalls, sometimes picks up to 1100 rpm, only to drop down again. Does this cycle half a dozen times (assuming it hasnt cut out...) and then idles ok. What the hell is going on??

    Vacuam leak? Dodgy stepper motor?

    Actually remembered the search funtion here, and figured it all by my little lonesome

    Whipped idle stepper motor out, quick clean with carby cleaner and it now purrs like a kitten . Now to get the oil leak fixed
