Hi,

Can anyone help me, my MGF VVC was recently serviced and after I opened it up for a 10 or so miles, it started to idle at 1200rpm. Once i filled the tank up with OptiMax it resumed idle at under 1000rpm. It has now started to idle at 1200rpm again. What is wrong with my baby ? Can anyone advise what i can do to sort it out ??

Thanks in advance.

I would be grateful if you could post a response asap.

Many thanks.

Does your car have the black plastic throttle body? If so, they are well known for distorting and causing the revs to hang, as you are experiencing ???

Check the basics, though.....check the throttle cable is not overtight :)

Other than that, replacement of the TB is the only cure, a good excuse to upgrade it for the all-alloy MGZR 160 [bigger] TB! :D :D
