I have a 2005 Polo 1.4TDi hatch. The car is cutting out while I am driving, it has happened while I have been on the freeway, I find if I rev a bit it then continues going. I took it in to a VW dealership...


Unlikely to be the battery, more likely is a problem with the Air Flow sensor or Accelerator Pedal Position sensor or Throttle Position sensor or even Turbo Boost sensor.

Vw polo maintains engine revs when foot is off the accelerator.


You need to check the cable the runs from the gas pedal to the engine, it might be rusty and need some drops of penetrating oil at the point it meets with the engine accelerator valve.

My vw polo keeps cutting out. when it slows down


try cleaning your battery terminals and tightening them. if that doesnt solve the problem your battery or alternator may be dying, some auto parts stores will do a charging system check for free that will tell you if one or the other is bad.

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?
