I live in South Africa and have an 1985 Opel Ascona 1.8 GSi. The two wires connecting to the auxiliary air valve are delivering a constant 12V no matter if the engine is hot or cold. If i disconnect the wires it makes no difference to the engine. The engine revs at 950rpm when cold and goes up to 1250rpm when it heats up. Aren't these wires supposed to only deliver current when the engine is cold? And if so how do I fix this? The auxiliary air valve seems to be packing up, is there any way to clean it? Carb spray maybe? Delta want over R500 for a new one here!
(R500 = about 100 Mc Donald cheeseburgers down here)
