Hello. My name is Mark and I will be assisting you today.

markthebooler :

How high do the revs go and for how long. If it is around 1200 rpm for a few seconds then that is ok.

JACUSTOMER-p2s5arf3- :

revs to about 2500 rpm for 30 secs or more does everytime you come to rest

markthebooler :

That sounds like something is sticking.

markthebooler :

Recheck the throttle housing to see if anything is in the way.

JACUSTOMER-p2s5arf3- :

nothing sticking

markthebooler :

Idle speed control valve could be sticking or you have fitted a faulty throttle body.

JACUSTOMER-p2s5arf3- :

as i said b4 new throttle body has just been fitted

markthebooler :

And it could be faulty

JACUSTOMER-p2s5arf3- :

doute its a gen part

markthebooler :

Is your throttle body motorised or is the one with a throttle cable

JACUSTOMER-p2s5arf3- :

cable

markthebooler :

I've seen plenty of new parts faulty

markthebooler :

If its a cable then also check cable tension and throttle switch is set properly

JACUSTOMER-p2s5arf3- :
