the Idle control valve might have stuck. take it off ( 3 screws ) and check if it slides smoothly. if not give it a good clean with wd40. worked for me.

thanks mate. looks like its easy enough to remove.

have read on here to try disconnect the battery for 20 mins as well.

seems strange this happened after saturday. on sat my car broke down, i looked around the engine bay when this had happened and i notice on the hard pipe, there is a small samco hose with a blanking plug in it, but the plug was actually out, so once i re fitted it the car was drivable again, only thing was that it was now revving higher than normal after i re fitted this.

I've tried both. But if the idle control valve is dirty it will not run smooth in and out.
Then the Idle control valve will not reset itself.Take the intake pipe off, unplug the connector and unscrew the 3 bolts holding it and give it a good rinse.

I didn't have to.
Every time you turn the ignition on it gives the ICV a pulse to adjust.
