Question about 1996 Volkswagen Golf

Skoda Felicia 1.3 choking/struggling when accelerating

Hi all.

I have been having a problem with my Skoda Felicia 1.3 GLXi fro around 6 months.

The problem being that after the engine has warmed up, say 15-20 minutes running when I accelerate the engine really struggles, it's almost as if the engine starts to choke, perhaps as is the fuel wasn't getting through.

I have done numerous service jobs on it but nothing seems to make any difference. I don't think it has a problem with misfiring, I put better spark plugs in, an oil change and also my last attempt was to change the fuel filter. I don't think it would be faulty alternator, that's electrical, my problem seems to be mechanical and definatley to do with the fuel somewhere along the way, I think.

I have no more ideas left and was hoping someone out there may be able to shed some light on the situation?

    I have got the problem all sorted now, it turned out to be just putting some new spark plug leads on as one cable was in pretty bad shape. It now runs sweet as a nut !

    Hope that helps you too dinodust !

Hi mate, This is not a solution, I don't want you to get your hopes up.

I've had the same problem for around a month now i've got an N reg felicia 1.3 glxi too. Was told to book it in for a service but after reading what you have put, i'm sure that won't fix the problem. Do you have the same problem when the car is idle? When I turn my car on and i'm on the phone for 5 mins it will start doing it then too. I've run out of idea's too!

Skoda gear selector assembly manual gearbox 1998 felicia please show design and possible solution to oil leak from gear box end

Normally there is a seal of sorts here (it may be a felt seal or a rubber flap) but I find that if there is a problem here I check firstly the oil level in the gear box and the viscosity of the oil in the box Remove the filler plug (plug in the side of the box ) and drain until oil is level with the bottom of the threads. Best replace oil with a known viscosity oil for you gear box.

The best place i can refer you to, for direct dealing with personal car sellers of any kind is or craigslist.

There you can find your choice car and mail the seller from there.

Take care and good luck
