It's much cheaper to replace a part. Your problem could be from a bad oxygen sensors, mass airflow sensor or even as simple as a leak in your intake system from a loose clamp. Changing from another brand will not guarantee you'll not encounter the same problem because until we start using fuel that's not petroleum base will the design change. Have a tech look at it pls.

My 2003 polo 1.2 is juddering at idle when warm, under load its fine. It seems to be slighlty better when cold but once warm it almost feelds like it miss firing

Hi ,
Imbalance of engine at idle can be caused due to many reasons..

1: Spark plug
2: Ignition coil
3: Cylinder head
4: Piston rings

Please let the spark plug and ignition coil checked asap and if that shows ok, then do an engine compression test , this may help to resolve the issue.

My vw polo keeps cutting out. when it slows down

try cleaning your battery terminals and tightening them. if that doesnt solve the problem your battery or alternator may be dying, some auto parts stores will do a charging system check for free that will tell you if one or the other is bad.

Renault 5, 87, fitted new water pump, worked ok for a while, now radiator fan doesnt come on car gets very hot, engine shakes whilst ticking over and acceleration is very spluttery, i need advice

change the rad switch thats in the rad ,that will make the fan work ,as for idle and missing ,i would do a compression check and if iam not mistaken it will need a valve regrind and maybe evan new valve springs .the reason i say this is because by its age i dont think renault used stelite coated valves and valve seats for unleaded petrol so you will have to grind the valves in as they will be all pitted and burnt ,and use a lead additive in future

VW Polo Classic 1997 IDLE Problems

Hello, VW polos 1.0, 1.4. 1.6, suffer from carbon bulid up in the throttle bodys causing bad idling, esp the Bosch Mono-Motronic (Throttle Body Injection systems), a good clean with carb cleaner should repair the problem, also engine temp sensor replacement and idle speed control valve replacement can help idle problems.
