Any suggestions welcome. We've had issues with a faulty Idle valve in the past, where the engine cut out at low revs but was fine at speed. Replaced it twice now. VAN been stood for a few weeks. Started fine, but when we took it out on the road it was choking under pressure. Have checked all air lines, replaced plugs, checked air filter earth wires etc to no avail. Just before I order yet another Idle valve, has anyone else had any similar issues.?

Hi, 
As you have probably found out nobody knows much about these engines, I had problems with mine which took a lot of sorting. Looking down from the radiator at the top on the left are two valves, the one which is more to the left of the pair has a rubber hose about half inch bore connected to the bottom of the manifold. This valve is open when the engine is running to ventilate the tank and is meant to close on tick over. Mine stuck open so the engine wouldn't tick over, easy test is to pull the big pipe off the valve and block it and see how things run. Your problem sounds like a weak mixture to me, are the hoses to the manifold intact. Alternatively there could be a problem with a coil or injector, let me know how you get on,

Thanks For the info Chris. Yes they are a problem, even finding parts etc. Of course I'll let you know. My husband has ordered another air intake valve controller.
