SOURCE: VW Polo 1.4 W Reg

Had the same problem with my 1.4 litre. Cleaned the throttle body thoroughly with a toothbrush. It was OK for a couple of month, then it was the same problem again. I then drilled a ~4 mm hole in the butterfly. No problems after that, and that was about 4 years ago.

SOURCE: My vw polo sometimes cuts out with battery light

Check your Belts first to see if they are loose, worn or slipping.
Check your Battery Connections. Take off the Cables and clean both the Battery Post and Cables with a Battery Cleaning Brush.
The Battery Starts the vehicle and runs nominal operations.
The Alternator provides the electricity to Run the Engine. It also provides a small trickle charge to the Battery, recharging it.
If the Alternator is failing, it will draw electricity from the Battery, until eventually the Alternator will fail and deplete the Battery, rendering the Battery (and veh) Dead.
A great way to check the Alternator is to:
1) Start the Vehicle.
2) With the Egine Running, Disconnect the Negative Cable from the Battery.
3) If the Engine Dies, then the Alternator is bad and needs to be replaced.
The Last possibility is the Battery is old, losing it's charge, or losing it's capability to be charged. If your Battery has rectangular caps on top, carefully remove one-cap-at-a-time; and using a Ball Float-Bulb Tube Battery Tester check each cell (hole). More than 2-cells (out of 6 cells) below 50% constitutes a new Battery. Also check your Battery Fluid Level. Use DISTILLED WATER only when adding Fluid. Remember that Battery Fluid is highly Acidic and causes burns.

Vw polo I.4 16 v stalling. cutting out when coming to a stop or slowing down..replaced battery ..new coils fixed timing..new fuel pump.. could it be a faulty oxygen sensor


A car I had did this (not a VW though). It turned out to be a dirty throttle position or body slider (or somesuch name). Once cleaned the problem was resolved. No idea where yours is located, but mine was near the air filter.

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.

My vw polo keeps cutting out. when it slows down


try cleaning your battery terminals and tightening them. if that doesnt solve the problem your battery or alternator may be dying, some auto parts stores will do a charging system check for free that will tell you if one or the other is bad.

not being smart but you are being fed porkies.. it sounds like you are drawing air somewhere or you have throttle body problems. you will need to get it on to a diagnostic computer to tell.
