I have this same problem, sometimes it idles fine them all of a sudden its as if someone is revving the car, where and how easy is it to fix the ICV?? If it needs replaced how much will it cost, is it a dealer only part???

second hand from Dixsons about 15notes
and about 100 for Vauxhall new

its a bit of a Arse as its tucked away at the back of the engine.
u can not fix a ICV as its a sealed unit
try cleaning it and refitting

the only other thing it could be is the air flow meter , it has a blanking plug on it that you can take off and adjust the screw underneath , you can adjust your idle and emissions with it , but it might be the early 20xe that this works on , like mine it has no cat or lambda sensor .
