Sounds like the idle control valve possible, my mum had a similar thing with an astra she had.
What age is your car and do you have an induction kit?
Split vacuum pipe or something maybe?
yeah got an induction kit on it, was gonna say the mangment light aint come on so it cudnt be the ivc but now that it has come on then i have already got that out and givin it a clean!
let u know how i get on
well i ended up changin the idle valve after the "paperclip test"
a lot better , but its still missing at low revs, do u think i have burnt a valve out?
