    Hunting ( and yes I've searched the forums)

    Hi Guys

    I have a bizarre hunting problem with my A6 2.4 V6 1999 edition. When AirCon is on there is almost no hunting and no stalling and idle sits happilly om 600-700. With AirCon off and climate control on economy revs are jumping from 300 to 900 and back.

    Please guys Any idea? This drives me nuts and also costs a lot on petrol as Aircon always on.

    Could be a faulty/sticking idle control valve... when you put load on the engine under idle the valve will be required to work differently, hence smooth idle.
