VW PASSAT 1.6 PETROL. Engine cuts out everytime slow down, otherwise it's fine. I've had the trottle box cleaned and new air pipe fitted buy problem persists. Could it be the Brain (ECU)?

remove, clean trottle body. use trottle body cleaner(spray) or nitro and some small brush)It should shine from inside, allso/especialy below the flap (hatch). if you have possibiliti do basic setting (tester).
it is not ECU faulty

59 reg Mondeo 2ltr petrol hesitates on light excelleration when engine is warm fine when choke is on , otherwise car runs fine any ideas ?


check all the breather pipes around the intake check for air leaks, failing that and there are no leaks take the air intake pipe off and check to see that its clean and you should see a pin hole in the butter valve on the top. if fine just give it a clean with some carb cleaner and get any black rings out and soot off it so it like new, put back together. failing that and still the same then it might be a air leak from the gasket to the engine you can check this with the carb cleaner run the engine and spray over the manifold and listen for the engine pitch to change or cut out if it cuts out it's definitely were the problem is, you can use this to find an air leak in pipes as well.

vaccum leaks cause this type of misfire . this sometimes happens when someone works on car and does not tighten hoses also could be low fuel pressure or lean fuel caused by air to fuel ratio. i would try vaccum first

VW Golf MK3 1996 P - Car cuts out when slowing down. Battery and Oil lights come on. Restart the car then starts juggering. Its not a fluid purring from the engine.


i would start by cleaning out the throttle body. they collect soot and not have to be a lot either for it to mess up the idle speed, i had trhis on mine soon as i dipped the clutch to slow down the rpm dropped to about 400 to stall, i cleaned throttle body out ( taking air intake off and wipe round inside and the butterfly will be enough) and now it idles and the rpm dont drop below 900

'94 VW Golf 1.8 petrol - engine cuts out and wont re-start


It could be. The car seems to be flooding its self as though you are driving on the choke all the time. Replace the air filter if dirty and clean all the breather pipes. Also check the accelerator cable is not snagged and is adjusted correctly.
