Could someone point out to me were the 'Air Control Solenoid' and the 'Air Flow Meter' is?? I had a diagnostics test and the fault what come up was 'Air Control Solenoid' but i have asked around and people said that this is another name for it!!! Also is it also known as the 'Idle Air Control Valve' I need help unrgent cause it is so slow of the mark it has been called a 'death trap' by a mechanic!

Yep, its the thing just after ure air filter, it has a cable plugged into the pipe and you will notice that section can be removed, thats the air sensor, had to replace mine on my derv, best place to get one from is ebay, but only get new from the original bosch ones.

just had a closer inspection, and cant really see it, follow the pipe from your air filer to see if its there, you did'nt take it off when you installed the induction kit by any chance?

that could be it, on it there will be a part number, type that into ebay and search for it, or if not try google, if air mass meter turns up chances are you have got it, its a fairly simple to remove too, just unscrew the clips and relace with ya new one.

x16xe uses a MAP sensor. the idle control valve isnt visible in that pic, its on the right hand side of the inlet manifold, actually fitted into the throttle body.

carb cleaner is best as wd40 is an oil and will promote a build-up of dirt and grease.
