Blindly, indeed! Not even worse nor better, though...

Ooops! I didn't any changes because I only touched the black cap of the screw... which appears stuck (waiting for WD40 job)!
But I had an attempt inserting a shim set wedge that allowed the idle with the connected breather hose...............

  • Launch X431 garage diag report (in french!)....




  • Should I have had to order a full reset of the fault codes, by the way?

    Can someone tell me about the size of the alloy headcover bore?
    Although done two VVC headgasket changes, I can't even remember!

    > just been told the hole was only 1 or 2mm thin! So definitely, no way to get the same required airflow coming that way!

    MAYBE SOLVED THIS EVENING....

    I came back to the mechanic who got me the faults diag, asked him to clear them, drove 10mns the the country roads, came again to get the new faults list, but there was none.
    Nothing changed at that point, kept the breather disconnected to drive home... Few hours later, while moving the car into the barn, I felt like the idle was higher... and could reconnect the little hose without stalling.
    Magical!
    Has the clearing of the EKU errors forced it to relearn better setting?
    As I was advised on "http://www.rovermg.fr"

    Wondering by now whether the canister could have had some bad effects because of the heat?

    ______________ Cheers, Olivier _______________

    Unable to find where to mention the post as "solved"
