Hi there, I'm very new to this site and to Fiestas so please be gentle with me.

Just bought a 2003 petrol 1.4 zetec se engine 116k miles and i wish I'd have bought one year's ago, the engine is sweet, it is basic but pleasingly quiet and has the one fault that nearly killed me so I must get it fixed. When the engine is warm, very often when I press the clutch the engine stops, not a massive issue if you are moving at speed as bumping it is easy but today I was pulling into a tight left turn and the engine stalled but the lorry behind me never expected me to stop and it nearly hit me. After googling the problem it appears that it is not uncommon and there are two possible cures, one is to clean the throttle body which I have taken off and cleaned with carb cleaner ( not cured problem) and the other is to clean the idle air control valve of which I cannot find or anybody else who has looked. I have attached some pics of my engine so any help would be appreciated, cheers all.
