Re: ISV sticking? Try cleaning the electrical plug first.

     Be carefull.  Aren't 2 hands with crossed fingers like a double 
     negative?  Personally, I would cross only fingers on the hand that 
     pulls your wallet out.

Here's an interesting observation: the ISV on my '90 CQ was causing one 
of the usual dying/sticking symptoms of crummy transition on/off 
throttle at low speed.
To confirm that it wasn't something else (how could that be, one asks, 
given the simplicity of our beloved Audis?), I unplugged it for my 
morning commute through Boston rush hour traffic. On/off throttle 
transition problems went away, saying that the ISV was the culprit, but 
lousy idle speed (what a surprise) was a problem. I plugged the ISV back 
in when I got to work, knowing I'd have to stop on the way home to get 
some carb cleaner to bathe the ISV in.
The ride home was my turn for a visit from the Audi Gods. The on/off 
throttle lurching went away! The idle speed was rock steady! Seems a 
little loving attention to the ISV, like unplugging and the re-plugging, 
may be enough to solve my problem! It has so far, X X (that's crossed 
fingers on *both* hands).
