      Try to determine when the timing belt was done and when it's due again. For a 16V it's very important that's it's done every 60,00 miles. If it's due soon that will be a big expense.

      You're right I didn't read that carefully. Still the Idle valve stabilizer is the cause of much grief. Try unplugging it to see if it makes any difference at all. It could also just be that your idle...
