    hi, just wondering if any of you suffer the same problem as i do, or have suffered it.

    when i've got the lights on, stereo going and i depress the clutch to come to a stop, the idle gets a bit erratic, dipping to 500 or so, goes up as engine man adjusts, goes to high, swings low/high a coupla times then settles as norm. even worse as you turn to full lock.

    i've cleaned the throttle body, do so on a regular basis, changed maf ( few times in last year!) regularly serviced (5000 mls) and everything else seems ok.

    did wonder if it's engine speed sensor or road speed sensor or something like that, but nothing comes up when it's plugged in to diagnostics.

    any ideas would be appreciated, though i don't look forward to a pas pump or alternator, just rather get some idea before i start throwing money at it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif
