SOURCE: vw golf stalls at lights and roundabouts

Check out the rubber/metal flange that joins the carburettor to its manifold. Wait while the engine is cold. Then check if the carburettor moves . Do this by taking hold of the carburettor and moving it a little side to side. The rubber mounts are known to perish after a time and this can cause air to be sucked in through the cracked flange rubber and in turn causing the engine to drop revs. The flanges are a replacement part and not too expensive so its a relativley easy fix if this is the problem.
GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: not reving high on cold start

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

SOURCE: when in neutral or low rev occassionaly cuts out

it's your idle air valve located on the backside of your intake round with two large lines going to it make sure you check junkyards first for one because you'll faint when you hear the price at the parts counter.

500 RPM or 5000? Reason I ask is the rev limiter shouldn't let it rev over 3500 in park or neutral? If idling at 500 then get an external tachometer and connect it to determine that your gauge isn't faulty! if at 5000 RPM it could be a stuck tps or possibly debris in the throttle body or a vacuum leak causing the idle to increase? Is it idling high or low compared to before it became faulty?

Hi mt mk3 golf gti 2.0 liter 8 valve seems to be hitting a limiter of some sort at 5000rpm it should rev to over 6000rpm why is this,? thanks


what aload of rubbish its not going over 5000rpm because the dizzie timings out and you need to get your crank or tdc timing then check all timing marks line up through top of gear box once its all lined up then you can set your distributor timing this is definately the problem so i hope you sort it ive red lined my golf for 2 years on nearly every journey at some point and the engine runs sweet as a nut but it does drink alot of fuel lol

my first solution would be to check all the timing is set up properly and you will probably find that the distributor is not timed up right
