|1.6 8v - uneven idle / hunting ? - cheddar|
Wife's 1.6 8v Clio RXE manual, drives fine (excellent actually) though idles at about 1200rpm and sometimes initially, when first coming to a stop, hunts between 1200 and 1500rpm.
CTS issues can effect idling though it starts / runs fine otherwise whether cold or hot so I dont think it is CTS related.
Had two minor idle related problems before:
1/ Around early 2002 low idle and occasional cutting out was initially diagnosed as idle control stepper motor though cured by using Shell/BP rather than Tesco fuel.
2/ Around mid 2006 lumpy idle cured by cleaning crank position sensor on top of gearbox.
