hi guys
all was well until my timing belt snapped also taking out the cam (snapping it into 3 parts) we couldnt get hold of a topend from any scrappies as nobody would split so we bought a full engine and popped it in all works great eg starting and running etc but it idles at around 2500 to 3000rpm

any ideas? icon_confused.gif

timing is ok

also could anyone inform me of the location of the fast idle sensor (choke) or if it even has one?

cheers

Rich.

also as a trial and error we had all fault codes cleared and checked and this made no difference

I'd check all wiring and pipes on engine make sure all sensors are plugged in correctly, and any vacuum pipes etc fitted correctly.

If you have access again to a code reader see i've any codes have been logged again, could be something like maf sensor

its sure to be an electrical problem of some kind, does it have a throtttle cable or is it electronic?

you could try disconnecting the battery for an hour or so to reset the ecu and then reconnect. Start the van and go for a drive rather than letting it idle see if it will re learn the position sensor.
