Angry EXTREMELY Frustrated Now!

Stalling -- STILL

From my post on the 18th:

"My 16V had all the classic problems -- intermittent starting/stalling problems (only when warm), finally no start or idle. I did the following:

1. New injectors and seals
2. New cap and rotor
3. New Fuel Pump Relay
4. New air temp sensor
5. New OVP fuse (tho' it was not blown)
6. New Idle Speed Valve

Seemed to work fine for about a couple weeks, then the stalling started happening again. Just for kicks, I unplugged the 2-pin connector for the Idle Valve and fired the car back up. It idled like a charm! Went in to look at my CD and found where the 2 wires go:

a) red/yel -- directly to the OVP
b) red/wht -- to CIS-E Control Unit --> red/yel to the OVP

I've got the OVP yanked and am ready to order a new one. Will let you all know the outcome (fingers crossed)."

Well, installed the NEW OVP tonight and took 'er out for a spin. 8 stop signs and no stalling (tho' the tach dropped to almost stall, then came up to idle after depressing the clutch and releasing the accelerator). Pulled into the garage, shut 'er down and waited for about 15-minutes. Tried to start it up and got chug-chug-chuggin' (barely idling). Pressed the gas to raise the rpm and it stalled upon release. Continued stalling the next 5 starts. Pulled the Idle Valve 2-pin connector and she fired right up; smooth idle. Took her for 2 separate spins -- no problems. Upon release of the accelerator (after depressing the clutch), I noticed the rpm's smoothly returned to idle (no overshoot towards stalling).

I'm at a loss -- please HELP!!!

Thanks All,
