I have changed the stepper motor last night, the motor looked slightly different but I fitted it anyway and reset the ECU all seemed well on the drive home. I started it this morning and the revs were bouncing between 1k-2k RPM, not good.

So I am thinking lambda sensor or throttle position sensor?

I have checked for air leaks and there seems to be none.

I think my manifold is leaking slightly so could that be a problem.

I may disconnect the lambda sensor....

Any ideas lads, im starting to get dis-hartend with the Rallye

Yes Indeedee!!
No amount of sensor work will resolve the situation if there is air getting in after the TB!

Damn! Thats going to be expensive.

But before I splash the cash I will try the sensors, as after an ECU reset the car behaves itself, I am thinking if it was the Manifold it would be reving between 1-2k RPM all the time.

Does anyone have a picture/locations of all the sensors, Power steering, Lambda and TPS?

Oh dear!!! Its started again.

However it seems to be ok if I switch the ignition on for 15 seconds and then start the car.

Very puzzled. Any ideas.

UPDATE

This has been getting steadily worse.

Sometimes when I turn the engine on it will rev hard, but the dashboard will be have no reading what so ever on any gauge, then gradually indicate 4K RPM, then as you pull off the revs will bounce from 1k-2k

I have been taking the battery off for 10 mins or so and doing an ECU reset and this seems to cure it for a day, then back in the morning (cold temps?) it will repeat the 4kRMP and no dash dead for a few seconds etc.

I did change the stepper motor but it looked slightly different to the one previously installed (shorter head).

Just so I can test the sensors can anyone point me in the direction of what resistance readings the CTS and TPS (and the TPS location) should be.

TIA

Yes under the throttle body butterfly. Generally these don't feck up the idle though - they make the car run crap and give you a huge lag on the accelerator.

Whip the inlet manifold off and check the gasket. They are a couple of pound from pug

Another thing,

I have just drove from Rotterdam to Hamburg (@90mph) and then to work and back 3 times, I think I will get around 420 miles+ from a brimmed tank.

Good fuel economy!
