Question about 1999 Volkswagen Golf
I have a 1999 Golf 1.6 and it works perfectly except for every now and then the rev counter will start jumping (between 0 and 2) and it then seems to cause the engine to cut out. It usually happens within the first 5 minutes of me driving the car; sometimes I will just be waiting at a junction and then when I go to pull off the car has cut out and the battery light has come on without me even realising.
When driving at speed the rev counter works fine, it is only whilst doing very low speeds or idling that it seems to happen. I suspect it is because the rev counter goes too low that the engine therefore cuts out although I have no idea what would be causing this. As I say, the problem is intermittent and sometimes it will start up and drive fine. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks
Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air
fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
