Recently purchased a civic 1.5 lsi 1995 model (M reg).

Have noticed that it has a low & lumpy tickover at times, low enough that the engine will stall when the lights and power steering hits full lock. Can I adjust the "idle control valve" to raise the tickover to clear this? If so can someone please indicate where the valve is? I have added a picture of my engine bay to help identify its position...

I did also notice that when I serviced the car the plugs that came out of cylinders 2 & 3 has traces of oil, could this be a head gasket failure which is the cause of the tickover?

Car/engine appears to be ok in all other respects!

Sorry for the photobucket link but the uploader did not work for me sorry!

Cheers in advance!
