Glad to see your 1.6! I sold mine about 7 years ago. It was a brilliant car but a white elephant for me. Last I know about it, it was used as a parts car.

There are numerous things that cause these fluctuations, i think there is an o2 sensor, i forgot. Usually, cleaning the o2 sensor or the sensor near the intake manifold fixes the fluctuations. But I will let seasoned ex 1.6 owners to reply.

The lower arms are not too expensive if I remember correctly. I had got them replaced around a year back because of the worn out bush.

Regarding the acceleration, do you mean to say that the idling is higher than usual? Check for any leaks in the hose that connects to the PCV valve. This is the one just above the engine cover.
