Very sad. Not only has the Proton Aeroback been rear-ended by a boy racer, it now won't idle at all. It revs clean and smoothly but when it slows to idle the revs just drop down until it cuts out. It starts immediately again but when my foot is off the throttle it just dies off. When driving at speed it's fine - no coughs or hiccups. I've replaced all vacuum hoses and checked plugs which were new a few months ago. It had new rotor arm and distributor cap in the summer. When I remove the little vacuum pipe that sits on top of throttle body it makes no real difference. It's fuel-injected and doesn't use OBD11 - apparently it's an Mitsubishi diagnostic system. Completely confuzzled... The car is beyond economical (cosmetic repair) but was hoping to nurse it along until I found another old kipper..
