Hello ewrybody.
Trying to fix my idle and steering problems. When is cold outside the idle goes up and down and engine shuts Off if i dont give it little gas .when warm up it idles fine. I Hope it's not the case of streched cam chain.
Steering. The car have been 3times on 2 different workshops on wheel alligment. Test result shows it's on the right measurements but the car wants to pull on the right side of the road. Is there somekind steering angle learning for p12. No obd2 fault codes appear. Car is driven
240 000 km.

Hi and welcome to the forum.Handshake
 
Have you checked the free movement of you wheels to ensure there is no binding of the brakes?

Hi Jussi. Welcome to NPOC. Handshake  You can try what Ash has said 1st, then if they are ok, you could try  swapping your wheels around. Left side to Right and Right side to Left or Front wheels to the Rear and Rear wheels to the Front. Thumbs Up

Excellent suggestions above. If it’s not:


  • brakes, e.g. sticky caliper

  • wheels, e.g. poor balance

  • tyres, e.g. incorrect pressure


it might be worth checking the suspension. Something might be heavily worn or damaged. Did, for example, the problem start immediately after you hit a pothole? Or did it develop over weeks?


Presumably, the car pulls all the time rather than only on a particular road (or as you brake). It might be interesting to check the tyres. How evenly they wear can tell a story. Good luck.

Temp gauge is where it is supposed to be. Are you sure when you are aware of it pulling to the side you are not on a cambered road? What happens when the steering wheel is held very lightly under braking?

New check. Loose front left dog bone and rear tilt stabilaser rubbers. After fixing those it helped litlebit the pulling issue. What comes to the bad warm up idle i think i heard loud hissing noise back of the intake manifold it meybe cracked!?. And fuel trims are short 0% long 10%. Any thoughts about fuel trims?

Have you a strong smell of fuel,  would check you fuel lines and air hoses, breathers.
