hello

I have a berlingo diesel van, it's an 02 and had it for 18 months, on startup it idles at around 10 or more and then when warm at 9.

does this engine have some kind of idle speed control valve I can access and clean out does anyone know please?

help appreciated.

I have a 1.9D Multispace, 04, and it does exactly the same. Are you concerned because you think the idle is too high? It has never given me any problem apart from low throttle running in slow mooving traffic when I sometimes have to dip the clutch.

hello, yes that is my concern.

I previously owned a clio sport and it used to do the same thing when the idle speed control valve needed cleaning, so every 12 weeks I used to take it off and give it a blast with some carb cleaner.

I have just bought a manual so will have a look later, basically I don't think it should be doing that you see.

Thanks for the reply, if I get any further I will post my findings.

ok sorted it, I changed the coolant temperature sensor and it only ever idles just above the 10 when cold, much easier to live with.

think I could probably have just cleaned up the other one with wire wool, but good to have a new one anyway.

bit quiet this forum? :-)
