ALWAYS request replaced parts be returned to you. that way you, I have no idea how you would tell. the "check valve" is the fitting in the fuel tank where the fuel line connects. Does it look new?the fuel filter is in the tank. a new one looks just like an old one. I don't know how you would tell if it had been replaced. if a good mechanic did it, you'd never see any evidence of the work being done. the most common problem causing idle issues is a fault with the engine temperature sensor. that is the sensor screwed into the front head just above and forward of the horn. let me know if you need more help.Steve
