My Vr is doing the Exact same thing Scooter79, has been donig it since i replaced my Tb with a bored out one, I have been meaning to swap the IAC sensor off the old Tb for a whlie now, I checked the codes but i didn't get any about the TPS, BTW mine did the exact same with the idles, 1500 sometimes jumping to ether 2000 or 1000 after a whlie.

If you work out what it was let me know :),

Well just letting you all know that it was the throttle position sensor. Replaced the sensor, put the throttle body back together and all is good again. I managed to get a new one from a local auto electrician for $73. I've read on this forum that some people got theirs from Holden for about $45 but Holden and Repco both sell them for over $100. Ring around a few auto electricians for prices :thumbsup:

De-greaser is probably not the right thing to put on the T/B or anywhere inside the vacum holes and such, Nulon T/B /Carb cleaner removes the black cpap instantly, much better than de-greaser and it also dries very quickly, thus the need for a squirt of CRC or similar to allow the piston to move freely in the hole it lives in.

It's probably worth getting one from the wreckers, they seem to either work or not work, would be a heap cheaper too.

The Gregory's recommends lubricating the IAC pintle with a drop of (clean) engine oil...

Actually the original post read (a small squirt of some CRC wil fix it) no doubt either will do the same job, CRC, WD40 or whatever may have been hinted at was only a guide, there are far better products available than CRC.
