    Anyone know where to find the ICV on a 1.6L 16V Ecotec engine, even better
    anyone know how to replace it?

    don't replace, just clean it.

    look back in the messages a few days,
    about another car stalling at trafficlights message thread
    there is a site which details what to do in one of the messages.

    very easy.

    If it's the same as mine (1997 1.6i 16v ECOTEC) then Haynes manual says you
    need to get UNDER the car - to extract ICV from under the inlet manifold !
    I had a mis-firing problem when engine was warmed up ( see post
    24/02/2006 ), turned out to be the ignition leads. Forget about buying leads
    from VX dealer (£143+VAT !!), use Autovaux or other cheaper suppliers
