I've had my KA for nearly two years, after I bought it the car started having issues with idling and stalling. When starting cold the car seems fine, however once I start driving the idle will drop when I change down to 1st gear. I can't stop at traffic lights or junctions without having to rev the accelerator to keep the engine from stalling.


I've replaced the TMAP sensor, the TPS sensor, the idle control valve, got a new battery, had the EMC checked and it still does it. I've cleaned out the Idle control valve before but maybe I didn't do a good enough job? Anyway, I'd really like to get to the root of this problem. I've probably spent over £2000 on repairs for this car, and I initially bought it for only £770 so it's been quite a pain. It'd be better now to have this issue fixed and keep it until it dies than sell it, given the amount of money I've spent on it.
