thankyou mate.

i got a small up date. the rev's working little better then before. if i say out of 100%, its 50% better now.

today i opened the box in which maf is fixed and the box underneath, where i fixed the hole.
u mentioned idle control valve, how shall i reach there?
is it close to where i went so far?

other question i need to ask, if i do the diagnostic check, will is show anything?

the check is 40quid here and labour is more in manchester. soo would be really thankful if u can point out how to fix. i will try to do it myself.
