YAY! Thankyou so much for your help! We picked up the car and it's PERFECT! No rough idle, no feeling like it's going to stall, no sticky brakes and the car feels like new! Strangely, when we took the car in on Monday, the car was running beautifully, with no hint of feeling like it was going to stall, even though on Fri-Sun it was still idling quite roughly. I don't know if it takes time after cleaning the valves for things to "clear through" or did something just "fix itself"? Either way, when we picked it up after the service, the mechanic did say that they had rechecked everything and readjusted the valves and O2 sensors. We did not get to speak to the manager again to find out what exactly was the problem, as he had already left by the time picked up the car, but are very grateful that it is running beautifully now. Now we're seeing if the fuel economy improves. We filled up as soon as we got the car back and so far we've done over 130kms and the fuel needle has barely dropped (previously it would've dropped about 20% already). So fingers crossed.
Again we want to thankyou from the bottom of our hearts for your advice. Thankyou!
