You have to clean up the fuel pump, and see whether it does or not require replacement. Do also the same with the starter engine, and see if the carbons are in good state or not.

Examine your engine mounts and the 'dogbone' at the top right of the engine. The jerking symptoms you describe do sound like a failed mount. The front lower mount is a hydraulic cushion type, and the chief sign of failure is oil leakage from it.

As to the wobbliness and bumpy ride, that sounds like the front suspension struts need replacement. You need good quality spring compressors to try that job yourself.

It is a crude test, but if you can easily bounce the front corners of the car up and down, and it keeps bouncing when you let go, then the struts are worn out.

This can be caused by a faulty throttle position sensor (TPS). It will normally be found on the end of the throttle shaft oposite the cable connection. They are fairly simple to replace, and cost less than $50.

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.

You can try to reset the throttle body by opening the hood and drivers door then turning your key to the accessory position. You will hear the throttle body whir and click. It may take up to two minutes. Afterward, the car will relearn your habit of driving and adjust accordingly.
