VW Golf Mk3 2.0L 16v low idle rev/cold cut out

Hi, i have a VW golf Mk3 GTI 1994. After getting rid of the engine management light by taking the spark plugs out and simply putting them back in i put redex into my car, since then the idle revs have gone from a strong 800 when warm to as low as 4-500 when its warm. when the engine is cold i have to keep on the gas pedal or the car will cut out... any idea as to what the problem is?.

Does a 1.4 16 v vw golf have a maf


this is a later model and not a 1999 and as such it may need the engine diagnostics reading as such this vehicle has to be connected to the internet via dealers digital signature to source the problem ,even if you know what part you need and change it then it still needs programming in to the car computer this is out of the realms of a weekend mechanic and for that matter even a mechanic like myself ,so you will gin and bear it and pay the dealer and get used to this as the newer the car then the less can be done to it by anyone except the dealership.

My car idles at 2k rpm as soon as the check engine light goes off


Most likely airflow meter giving trouble. Remove it and try cleaning it you will get spray for this in an auto factor's or an electrical repair shop. Cleaning may not fix it as it may just be worn out and will need to be replaced. A genuine V.W. one is expencive but enquire at your auto factors they will be able to get you one at about half the price. Hope this helps. Cheers

Vw golf stalls at lights and roundabouts


Check out the rubber/metal flange that joins the carburettor to its manifold. Wait while the engine is cold. Then check if the carburettor moves . Do this by taking hold of the carburettor and moving it a little side to side. The rubber mounts are known to perish after a time and this can cause air to be sucked in through the cracked flange rubber and in turn causing the engine to drop revs. The flanges are a replacement part and not too expensive so its a relativley easy fix if this is the problem.
GOOD LUCK
