THE GDI ENGINE SUFFERS FROM EXTREME "COKING" - DEPOSITS THAT STICK AROUND THE VALVES AND PREVENT PROPER OPERATION, RESULTING IN POWER LOSS. REPAIR CAN BE EXTENSIVE AND COSTLY ESPECIALY IF YOU START TO HEAR A RATTLE ON IDLE. THE FIRST STEP I WOULD SUGGEST IS, TRY USING FUEL ADDITIVES SUCH AS WURTH FUEL/GAS/VALVE TREATMENT THESE ADDITIVES ARE QUITE CAPABLE OF CLEARING OR CLEANING CONTAMINATED PARTS IN TIME.

I have a 2001 passat , 1.8 turbo (petrol) , automatic. recently the car lost power while driving. the car continued to idle but when i press the accelerator nothing happened. it just kept on idling. l


2001, is most likely drive by cable. check the plastic clips at the throttle body and the gas pedal. They break. If it was drive by wire. it would have thrown a code. You can't buy the clips. replace the cable

What needs to be checked when my truck has poor acceleration going up a hill? Why does it have no power and then have surges of power


depending on the model of truck , it could be the throttle body that causes poor acceleration ,could be the fuel filter if the engine starves for fuel it will affect the performance , yo should check fuel pressure and volume on the fuel system ,it could also be the eger vavle most newer trucks and cars have linear eager vavles and if the stick a little open on idle they can cause surging ,poor acceleration even missing . if the check engine light is on find out the codes and go from there . on older models it could be the TPS or the IAC v, but i would need to know what codes are in it first . It could be as simple as bad fuel .or a vacuum leak

I found my engine Mitsubishi pajero fieldmaster Model 2002 with rough idle when I started this morning. It took sometime before running well


unsure if this is petrol or diesel model. check basics first,air filter not clogged,sparkplugs not sooted and gaps burnt wide. if it is a GDI V6 model,thay have common fault with dirty throttle body(TB) and air mass unit,causes rough idle and gets worse over weeks until it doesnt improve.this can be easily fixed by cleaning with solvents available for air flow sensors and tb's. if engine has plastic cover,remove this to access TB

I have 2001 carisma 1.8 gdi with a trouble code p1221, what is tis, thanks


It is an issue which concerns the throttle and the throttle body. Have the pedal position also checked.. normally this code is also associated with high reving then going into gear.

Volvo s40 gdi


My 1998 Volvo does the same sometimes. Better petrol helps for me, these engines like the higher octane petrol. My car does not like the BP petrol at all for example.
