I have a 98 vw bug 5 sp when i slow down it idles to low and the rpms drop and it cuts off.


Since VW's are especially sensitive to minor problems I would start by checking for vacuum leaks and bare wires in the engine compartment. Use a spray can of carb cleaner to spray along each vacuum line. If the engine revs up there is a leak in that line. Replace it. Make sure you check the joints too.

When you are inspecting the wires pay close attention to the plug-ins. Quite often on VW's the wire will start to break off at the plug-in. These will need to be replaced.A trip to a scrap yard will probably be your cheapest source for these but make sure the replacements have the same shape so they will fit.

If your engine has a similar set-up as the older CIS-M for fuel delivery you need to inspect your air intake for cracks or holes. With CIS the "throttle body" actually measured air flow and sent signals to the fuel distributor mounted at the air box. If air is able to enter the system "after" the fuel delivery, this would create similar problems.Temporarily repair the air leaks and head for the scrap yard.

If the problem persists I would check out "vwvortex.com". Go into the technical section and use your engine as your guide, for example 16V,for your search.It has a search function but you need to be somewhat vague, engine dies, or low idle, engine cuts out. Most engine problems are drivetrain specific as opposed to vehicle specific. Hope this helps.

83 vw rabbit gti clanking/knocking sound


That doesnt sound good. Check the engine oil level and top up as necessary. If the noise is still there, then you should take it to a mechanic to check. It could mean that you need to either replace the engine or overhaul it. Hope that helps

I need a wiring schmatic for a 88 vw fox


The ignition switch and relay supply the power. Switch to relay, relay to pump. make a set of jumper wires and run them from battery to pump and see if pump runs . If it does its ok. Next pull fuel injection relay (under dash in fuse box)check it for burnt terminals , resistance and continuity. Its a good idea to get a shop manual for this car. This car is a pleasure to fix . After you pull relay for pump get a voltmeter and test the circuit for B+ (don't forget to put key in ignition and turn to the on position.
If you get B+ here switch is ok most likely relay is the culprit.
Remember there are two fuel pumps for this vehicle
One in the tank (accessable via trunk lift carpet and its in the right corner) the other under the car by the tank. have fun and good luck

Runs but wont idle. smells to rich. other than that it runs fine


This sound like a vacuum leak... Look carefully for loose/cracked hoses and connections from the fuel distributor/air box to the throttle body and around the idle enrichment bypass hoses... and also the intake gasket itself. The reason it smells rich is that the injectors are firing more to compensate for the lean running condition. It you run it this way too long it will overheat and warp the head or **** a valve... Hope this helps...;-)

It sounds like it could be a problem with the fuel pressure regulator. When the engine is cold, there is a cold start valve that dumps extra fuel to start a cold engine.
