Keeps cutting out. looks like petrol leaking from carburator at rear section. When taking air intake filter housing off the vehicle starts and runs but cuts out after replacing filter housing.

    Thanks..found that one of the speed pump cover screws were stripped and created an opening for fuel to escape and also miss align the plunger assembly. A new screw and flush mounting solved the problem.

It is possible that the float level is set too high or even that some part of the air cover assembly is putting on something. It sounds strange that the engine seemed to run alright with the cover removed. It's possible that it could be a combination of things and you would have too know what to look for.
VW engines especially.Regards

SOURCE: Hi I Have a steering shudder under acceleration ,

what you're discribing seems to me to be a misfire which would definitely set the engine light. it may also indicate a front end drive axle out of balance. possibly a wheel bearing or worse a bearing in the trans. best to take it in for service.

Citoen xsara keeps cutting out

Have the fuel filter changed most likely cure.
If not it could be numerous problems from fuel pumps to injectors, coil packs,spark plugs air filters etc
Try the fuel filter first if it isn't cured get a diagnostic check done by a garage.
Note petrol and diesel can have different causes also the fuel filter on a diesel is not a diy job.

Need to hook up a VW scanner or equivalent so you can isolate where it's not functioning properly from the DTC (display trouble code) stored in it's memory.

My vw polo keeps cutting out when rev's drop

It could be alot of things best thing you can do is get the car hooked up to a diagnostic machine this will then point you in the right direction. It could be the TDC sensor or a leak in the air system or it maybe something simple like the air intake system needs cleaning and the car a good service. What is the mileage on it? and do you know when it was last serviced?

Lancer not getting enough fuel and cutting out

It might be the fuel filter needs to be changed and it's cutting off flow. Other wise you'll have to look at the pump or injectors.
