i have a w reg corsa, and it started cutting out unless you keep your foot on the gas, the mechanic said there was 2 safety pins in the engine, which he removed it has since started cutting out, he said there should be some sort of box that stops it cutting out which should have been there instead of the pins, ive never heard of this any one know? thanxs

Sounds more like the Idle Control Valve or something like that has gone.

Strictly speaking this should be in Help Zone
