    Thats a large difference in price points, hence why I'm asking members about their experience with any particular brands or supplier.

    I also agree that many ISC's can last a while. I think the one in the KH was still original when I sold it, from memory, not sure.
    But I do notice threads here where they fail. I guess it depends on a lot of factors.
    Given that they can fail it raises questions such as; at how many k's do they typically fail? (when they fail), how much should we be paying for one? and which brand is reliable?
    One factor that could cause a failure might be cleaning the throttle body with the correct aerosol cleaner, but not blocking the port to the ISC motor.

    I have not done the cleaning process(I have looked inside the T/B a while back but it was quite clean and I have not been experiencing idle problems so I let it go) but some that have may have allowed the aggressive aerosol solvent to enter the port and end up seeping into the motor and damaging it.

    It is difficult to confirm this, but it would be a reasonable assumption.

    The solution would be to remove the motor from the T/B, but by doing this there is the possibility of disturbing the O ring seal.

    ISC Motor/Valve "O Ring":

    ok, the isc O-ring genuine MD614417 (its $11)....or go to a bearing place and grab "AS 568 O-ring dash #027" (its 50c) in the brown O-ring (cant remember the name) its better suited for fuel areas.

    Sounds like we need a new thread, then.

    "Sourcing suggested spares" or similar.

    Isc

    Etc

    I have found the existing Third Gen. Parts List thread to be useful:

    http://www.aussiemagna.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=39415

    Whenever I find a new part, or believe that it has not been posted before, I try to update that thread with the relevant information.

    I am loathe to commence new threads when there is a satisfactory thread already in place.

    Each and every extra new thread makes searching incrementally more difficult, and can lead to confusion and a person being unlucky enough not to manage to find the exact thread with the exact information that could have helped them.

    If relevant threads are not scattered around "shotgun" fashion, there is a better chance that the information sought will surface in one larger comprehensive thread rather than in many smaller threads.

    Of course, there are those who persist on starting new threads for even the most small detail that have been covered previously.

    I am at a loss as to why common sense is ignored, or why some make little or no attempt to carry out a search.

    Sometimes, a new thread might introduce a new facet of information to a discussion and might be useful, but many times it is not.

    I have learned a few things myself as a result of looking into this matter, so this particular thread is a positive one, IMO.

    Note the emphasis.

    These thoughts are mine, and others may disagree but I am entitled to air them without being sworn at or personally insulted, which has happened in the past.

    Not that I expect that to happen in the present instance.

    I will buy this one, its the cheapest at $25.
    They claim its as good as the OEM part and built to high standards.
    Lets see how it goes; can it live up to these claims?
    Do we really need to spend $hundreds on an after market ISC or will a $25 part do it?

    Even though my car has never shown any symptoms of a failing ISC, I will probably buy one and keep it on hand "just in case".
