VW Polo: 1999

Hello,

I bought a second hand VW Polo a few weeks ago. I'm having a problem with the car cutting out as I'm slowing down to stop.

I told the garage whom I bought the car off. I told them that the Alternator warning light comes on when I'm slowing to a stop, and the car cuts out. They had a look at it and they said they checked the Battery and the Alternator and everything was fine. They told me the problem was the on-board computer, and that they have re-set it.

I'm still having problems with it. Can you help?

    I have the same problem, especially changing down from third to second. I have checked the battery and fuel lines, everything seems to be ok. Stumped!!

Not being smart but you are being fed porkies.. it sounds like you are drawing air somewhere or you have throttle body problems. you will need to get it on to a diagnostic computer to tell.

SOURCE: 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.

Vw polo I.4 16 v stalling. cutting out when coming to a stop or slowing down..replaced battery ..new coils fixed timing..new fuel pump.. could it be a faulty oxygen sensor


A car I had did this (not a VW though). It turned out to be a dirty throttle position or body slider (or somesuch name). Once cleaned the problem was resolved. No idea where yours is located, but mine was near the air filter.

Vw polo 1.0cc 1999 will not start


If still relevant I have a 98 polo- same symptoms-showed spark everywhere only the one at the plugs was not as strong as one at coil. Anyway ended up taking it to Volkswagen and 70€ later they could not find out what was wrong-diagnostics came clear. As advised went to the brokers, got a new coil and distributor, but no luck-spark plugs, distributor cap and stick are all new. In the end I was already driving another car when an older mechanic told me that he's seen them not starting because of the HT leads. Mine- double silicone looked good and everyone said they were ok -no cross firing in the dark. Anyway, in the end changed the ht leads and the car started-now I have to tune it back after all the stuff everyone tried...
