my 1990 cds T, has developed an unusal idle problem, when starting cold, the idle is at around 1500 - 2000 revs, but when warm, settles down lovely to about 1000 revs, ive checked vac lines, and they seem ok, but why has this just started (last few days), previous it was fine.

any help appreciated

i wouldnt say it is erratic just high, also until a few days ago, the idle used to always drop below the 1000 rpm line, i suppose to base idle, but now when warm, it's at 1000 rpm, i'm now wondering if i might of got some dodgy fuel, i wish i could get optimax, but no shell garages around here, i'll throw some injector cleaner in tomorra, i normally do every 5th tank full anyway.

cheers

problem now solved, a tankfull of SUL, and a bottle of STP injector cleaner, and a blast up the A19 to newcastle and back, and she's sweet as. might even contemplate putting my dawes back on, but i think i'll leave it for the time being, fingers crossed an all that...

cheers gang
