I would start by cleaning out the throttle body. they collect soot and not have to be a lot either for it to mess up the idle speed, i had trhis on mine soon as i dipped the clutch to slow down the rpm dropped to about 400 to stall, i cleaned throttle body out ( taking air intake off and wipe round inside and the butterfly will be enough) and now it idles and the rpm dont drop below 900

Part number on my vw mk3 1996 is for a pipe from the crankcase pressure valve, 037 103 493 AK hose/pipe £13.69 plus at vw garage, 10 mins to fit, the pipe had worn holes in the corners, car runs fine now no cutting out at junctions or roundabouts.

As mentioned in earlier posts. Remove clean the throttle body refit then carry out basic settings on the throttle body with suitable software on a computer plugged into the diagnostic socket.

I had a 1.4 8 valve and it used to cut out when slowing down, it also used to lose power for a few seconds when driving on the motor way. I replaced head gaskets throtle bodies and everything and it ended up being the engine bay lome. maybe its the same with yours!!

How do you reset the timing on a 1998 VW Jetta?


a car of that year should have an ecu controlling fuel air mix etc. this normally controls the timing.
To reset the ecu on my '95 VW Golf disconnect the battery (negative / black terminal) for 15-30 minutes depending on who you ask. So I do 30 minutes.
If it has central locking make sure you don't leave the keys in the car when reconnect it. swich on the ignition without starting the engine so the dash lights up with the oil light etc. for 30 seconds then off for 10 seconds. then start your car. It will relearn so it will run a bit rough for a while but should settle down. take it for a spin on different types of road ie. slow and fast.

Car starts and drives then cuts out


before going to a garage if you can find a mobile electrician on yellow page it would be ideal i'm a mechanic not an electrician get a diagnostic check i'm sure he or she will give you a solution or don't just take it to the garage yet most probably they will also get a motor electrician in and have it checked them selves you will believe me HAVE TO PAY ATLEAST DOUBLE that amount oh by the way what is the mileage and what engine oil do you use

Loud clicking noise whenstarting vw golf 1998


it could be noisy lifters... do you have clean oil in there oil is it black.

dirty oil will make volkwagens make lots of engine noise.

it also could be a spark arcing to metal. check to see all your spark plug wires are pushed all the way down and dont have cracks in them.

Coil light and loss of power


The battery grounding ******** vw's periodically go bad and need replacement, I would suspect this to be the case.
It will corrode
in its casing, resulting in faulty electrical systems.

not being smart but you are being fed porkies.. it sounds like you are drawing air somewhere or you have throttle body problems. you will need to get it on to a diagnostic computer to tell.
