Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

When I take it out of gear it stalls.

I have a vw polo 1.4i 1997 model and everytime I take the car out of gear without touching the clutch or brakes in other words I let it free untill it comes to a complete halt the revs drop to below 500 and often the engine will simply stall but as soon as the car comes to a complete halt in other words the precise moment the wheels stop turning the revs return to normal. Remember the car is out of gear the wheels are free from the drivetrain. My Question is there a sensor that monitors the motion of the wheels and in turn communicate with the fuel injection, because the revs only return to normal when the wheels stop turning, is this electrical or fuel injection problem. I have checked the checkvalve going to the intake manifold it is working. Thanks
plse help

Kia Rio 2005 manual, the gear will get stuck and car shakes and stalls on its own when I come to a stop, foot on clutch and brake, in reverse and first gear.


what would happen if you put it in first gear,put your foot on the clutch then try to start the car....of course pick a place where safe!!!...if it rolls forward while cranking ,the clutch plate is touching the flywheel (in other words the clutch all the way down while in gear while cranking,should NOT touch the flywheel(transmission part that makes the car move) so if it moves then it shows the transmission reacts to the clutch touching the other jiggamathig. Possibly clutch system needs bleeding (air in the hydraulic system). I'm sure your car has this thing called a "clutch slave cylinder". Now,this is one thing I would check first.

Hi Val,first of all the gearboxes for all vw are made in the same factory in germany and if one model of car was giving trouble the whole range would suffer.i.e.SEAT/SKODA/AUDI/VW.I have not heard of any specific cars giving trouble.but to answer your problem,get the linkage checked by a dealer as these tend to wear and a specific tool is required to set them up properly.and while they are under the car get them to change the oil for the gearbox.you do not need to get a NEW gearbox as a reconditioned one is MUCH cheaper.if you want to down that road.(you will still need to get the linkage set up).
hope this sorts it out for you.regards. geoff,England.

Vw polo 1997 999cc often idles eratically


First- lets change engine coolant sensor/ECT/ and you will be very surprised.Black head with four pins.Be very carefull when change it because there is pressure into coolant system.First-open slowly the cap of engine coolant tank.Then tighten again to safe coolant.Unplug the sensor,remove the pin and pull out the sensor.If the "O"ring/old one/ is still inside-take it out.
