SOURCE: Idling speed vw golf petrol 1.4 2001

That sounds about right, the idle speed may not even be manually settable due to emissions regulations.
I know for sure you can't adjust the idle mixture anymore; that is determined by sensors and the on-board computer.
There may still be adjustments on some cars but they are often sealed with lead to avoid tinkering.

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: VW GOLF 1.4 1999 S. Gearbox makes whining sound at idle

No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.

Help please, my vw golf 1.6 sr is loosing mad power. it wont accelerate properly and the revs arent going past bout 2000rpm, rev counter sits below 0 when idling?? it takes ages to even get up to 30


IF YOU SEE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHING LOOK FOR TURBOCHARGER WASTEGATE REGULATOR VALVE FAULT OR MAP SENSOR FAULT.THAT COULD BE YOUR PROBLEM.IF NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHING YOU COULD HAVE A RESTRICTED EXHAUST SYSTEM BAD TURBOCHARGER, RESTRICTED FUEL FILTER.ALL THOSE THINGS WILL CAUSE POWER LOST.

Hi i have just bought a 07 1.4 tsi golf. The Turbo doesnt seem to be kicking in as it should is this a serious problem?


as it should or as you thought it would ?

TSI is a technology that combines supercharging AND turbocharging

The supercharging will give power at low revs and the turbo at higher revs.

this means that there isn't somewhere where the power "kicks in".

Its power from idling to the red line. full stop.

If you think it isn't right take it to a VW dealer to have it checked out.

However, faulty turbos or superchargers make a car undriveable, so maybe you are not receivinbg as much as you had hoped.

I have a vw golf mk iv,starts and drives ok ,but on idle its starts to rev up and down most times it cuts out altgather.gary


Have it scanned from a shop that specializes in VW's and get the best guestimates of what's happening with the system. Now if you have the codes already, interpreting what it means is a different story and probably able to suggest you the corrections right away.

My car idles at 2k rpm as soon as the check engine light goes off


Most likely airflow meter giving trouble. Remove it and try cleaning it you will get spray for this in an auto factor's or an electrical repair shop. Cleaning may not fix it as it may just be worn out and will need to be replaced. A genuine V.W. one is expencive but enquire at your auto factors they will be able to get you one at about half the price. Hope this helps. Cheers

Vw caddy 1.9 sdi r reg does not rev up


Check the turbo pipes for internal splitting , this will block air flowing through to the engine. Also check if a catalitic convertor is fitted , this could be blocked.
