Hi, I have a '81 with 602 engine, all original (no tuning or something..), but in the last time she started to act really weird. When it is really hot, she can hold in idle ale the engine is dead, I neet to step on the gas even on red lights to keep it running. What is the problem? I am currently finding some info before I get to work and "hot" cadidates are: ignition coil, idle jet, or debris in carb. Next problem is: the "electric" light comes on when am driving in the rain and light are on and wipers are on, is it a sign of a weak alternator? Thank you in advance for some sug
Hi All, Posted on the other ZX section, so apologies for duplication. The idle rate on my 97 ZX SX TD has moved from about 1000rpm to about 1150rpm.

The same with fuel sonsumption - seems to be relatively unchanged but still checking it out. Any suggestions much appreciated.
Hi All, Looks like it's been a bit quiet on here lately. All those ZXs can't have gone to scrapyard heaven yet, can they? Anyway, got an idle problem on a ZX turbo diesel. It's a 97 ZX SX TD, 170K miles. The idle rate has suddenly moved from 950-1000 rpm to 1150ish. The rev range seems spot on at higher revs so looks like the idle setting (or something that can influence the idle rate) has altered. It happened about the same time as I hit a particularly nasty pothole. Fuel consumption may have increased slightly, but can't be sure at the moment. The car feels marginally rougher, but again
