Don't know but I had the same thought and will check tonight, A co-worker engineer suggested getting the car to sit stable @ 3000 rpm disconnect the hose from the intake and see if air is coming out. Don't know if the car will keep running but I will give it a shot.

Do you know if the IAC is still open once the throttle is open or does it shut once the throttle is open. Cna't seem to find this info anywhere. Am still in debate with the co-driver on whether this would give you a boost leak. I say ye, he say ne.

Cheers

I would imagine cant remember but the Iacv is just for when engine idling so I would imagine it stops working when you open the trottle as it not needed cause it getting air from the trottle being open cant remember doh again did you take off the baileys dump valve and try the standard one might be just that?

Re: Idle problem

Hi again,

I took it to Subaru Mentone today and they found no faults (still runs like sh*t though). As it turns out the same MAF sensor that is in a liberty is in a Rex, so I stole my wifes...That helped a tiny bit but not completely.

What he did confirm is that the IAC valve will give you a vacuum leak if it is faulty. Whilst I was stealing the MAF sensor out of the wifes 95 liberty I noticed that it has a very similar IAC valve, just located in a different place. Does anyone know if it fits.

the car is now making boost but taking a long time to get there and then stuttering and carrying on once it gets boost.

Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers

Jade

PS It's another dude with the Bailey BOV.
