Problems with Rev's on my golf

When my cars parked up and the engine on, the revs start to bounce sometimes and feels like it's going to cut out.
if I revs the car it's fine then until next time it happens.
anyone got any idea why this happens?

What would cause temperature gauge bouncing ?


Sounds like the sending unit has an intermittent short to ground. Unhook the the wire from the sending unit, and see if the needle stops jumping around. If it quits jumping around, replace the sending unit. If it still jumps around, you have a bare spot somewhere on the wire and it is hitting ground which will cause the needle to jump. Cut out the bad part of the wire and splice in a new section. That should fix it.

Hi Cindy,need to check and see if the belt is turning tightly,they may have not done it,to check,open hood,start engine,leave in park,go to engine,find accelerator cable and rev up gas and see if belts are turning tightly,or have someone rev gas in car and someone watch.Also look around engine to see if they let something out of place,you never know these days,even at dealers.

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.

Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out


Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck
