1987 vw cabriolet idles up and down. When you accelerate it bogs. If you come off gas pedal a little rpms pick up. Has new distributor, coil, fuel pump, plugs and wires. Also cold start vavle replaced....


At that point, I think the best thing to do would be having the carburetor taken off, take it apart, put it in some gunk remover (Carburetor Cleaner sold in 1 gallon barrels), then wirebrush it all out, make sure all the jets are clean, buy a carburetor repair kit, and put it all back together with new seals. At how old your car is, it would probably be best for it. On the cheap side, all that needs to be done is having the carburetor's throttle accelerator pump fixed (Squirter). A shop should be able to do all this, but it's not hard, either.

92 celica dies when it idles down, but will start back up


1st off your car doesn't have a carburetor, it is fuel injected and will compensate for any altitude change up to 5,000 feet, here is what u need to do.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Check for a vac. leak. First listen for a whistle or a high pitch sound if you have any fix them. You can get a can of carburetor cleaner and spray around the vac, hoses even the big one on the brake booster unit and the back of the master cly.
