205 GTI - Alison Cowdell
My 205 GTI runs really eratically on tickover, I understand that this is caused by the fly wheel which on the 1.6's is actually too small, and this worsens as the car ages, Peugeot corrected this problem on the 1.9's with a larger fly wheel. The only thing I have heard of to smooth out tickover is an ecotec valve, which I can get hold of, but is there nothing else to be done? Can you help?

Dear Alison,

Years ago I had one. There's a brass screw on the inlet manifold. Turning this increases the revs slightly at tickover which disguises the problem.
