    It's located at the rear of the engine, on the passenger side. Before you
    change it, remove it and check for a sticking pintle. More often than not, a
    piece of carbon will lodge in the base causing it to stick, and cleaning is
    straight forward.

    Fixed! Found it, cleaned it and now the fault has disappeared!
