    Title pretty much sums it up. Its running like a gutless pig. sounds a bit
    chuggy at idling. put your foot down and sometimes it almost dies. Couple of
    weeks ago I cleaned out the ICV but it wasnt that bad. EGR is next on the
    list, but I cant find the damned thing!

    Haynes book of jokes says its on the LH side of the manifold. Even shows a
    picture, but its next to the dipstick, which is on the right! Anyhow, left
    or right, I cant find it at all. Anyone got any ideas? or even a link to a
    better picture than the grainy crap in the book?

    Well I went to the main deals with the VIN and they say it isnt fitted with
    one! that explains why I cant find it.

    So I put in a new set of spark plugs, but that hasnt made any difference. It
    still runs like shit. Idling hunts up and down, putting your foot down (when
    stationary-its not capable of driving) sometimes makes it go a bit, more
    often it dies almost to stalling. All the breather pipes to the ICV are
    free. I'm getting desperate here guys. Anyone got any ideas?
