  1. turns out the obd2 ecu I purchased was faulty , Vince replaced my ecu and all is good with the starting etc now ive just got an intermittent misfire so going down the coilpack route , new coilpack fitted March 2018 but only a £60 eBay one ,
  2. Right had it plugged in again and it’s showing fault code 00282 changed throttle body for a known good one and still the same so thinking it’s a wiring issue , will investigate when it comes back from Vince and update on the cause , 👍🏻👍🏻
  3. Idle control valve ? That’s built in on the obd2 throttle body ain’t it ? I’m baffled by it if I’m honest as the common things have all been done and some , what I really don’t understand is that even with the obd1 to 2 swap the problem is still there , the engine was stripped down to a bare block and re build last year with all new sensors crack pipe stat etc etc i thought maybe a broken wire in the loom but then again the looms been replaced too , its off to see vince next Saturday for cams and a map so hopefully he will be able to suss it out let’s be honest if he
