im having idling problems with my vr, not that it ever idled smooth but it worse than it was a month ago and im thinking it may be the PCV valve. can anyone add any input into my theory and or clarify where the pvc valve is on the vr. im pretty sure its in a rubber hose bout the width of a 5 cent peice and next to the EEC vac lines on the throttle body heading into the inlet manifold?

I'm a bit late with this comment but I agree with Maldotcom2. I cleaned the throttle body and IAC valve on the Lexcen last weekend and there was a vast improvement in the way the engine idled. It was the first time I'd cleaned it in 193000 km.
