Thanks for the reply daisy :o)
Just thought I would update you all, I was out driving yesterday, and car cut out 4 times on a 4 mile drive, 3 times at 20-30 mph the other going round a corner, which was scary as I lost all power steering, and with a bad shoulder was difficult to steer! :(
I called the AA out, he connected the car to computer diagnositcs, nothing was stored on my car. SO he started car and it rev hunted, and he said he thought it was my idle control valve. He took the thick pipe coming into left hand side of engine off, and sprayed some cleaning stuff down it. The car immediately started reving, and was rev hunting. It then cut out completely, and did this twice. On second time he sprayed more spray in and let it soak, he then turned engine back on, it started great went to 1500 revs and slowly down to 750. My car sounded happier, it wasn't jumpin or revind anymore.
He said if problem returns I will need idle control valve changing.
Hope this helps someone else.
