Sounds like a bad IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. HTH. - Jim

ok, check the charging system. When the alternator on my '93 Chevy Caprice was dying in caused the idle to be unsteady. It didn't exactly "hunt" but there was fluctuations. When voltage would increase idle would go up. When voltage would decrease idle would go down. HTH. -Jim

You're welcome. Sorry it's not fixed. Please let us know what it turns out to be. I'll be curious to find out. Thanks -Jim


I have a very similar problem on a 2001 Corsa. The car gives normal readings without any fault codes, until it warms up. Then it stops sending any information as if the ECU is completely shut off (ie it instructs to turn on the ignition, because its not receiving any signal). At this point the car is still running but it starts to hunt for idling. Has anyone found a resolution to this issue? Apparently the ECU on these models are known for going faulty after a while.
