Hi

Most likely cause is either the air mass sensor also known as the MAF sensor or the 02 oxygen sensor, I would go with air mass firstly as they are cheaper and you can clean them, and they can last much longer.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

Idles high when cold 2004 jetta 1.8 t


This is normal. The ECM monitors engine temperature and increases idle when it sees the engine is cold. The ECM sets the idle back to normal when engine temperature rises.

COMPLETE LOSS OF ACCELERATION


this vehicle is built with a throttle body by wire, that means that it doesn't have the cable from the accelerator to the throttle body, normally this happens when people change the battery, try disconnecting the battery for 10 min, then touch the 2 terminal cables together, to discharge any power in the system, connect battery and try again. if it doesn't work, you well need to program the throttle body or a may be defective. also check all of the fuses, all of them not just some. good luck.

Cold start low ideling


You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

I changed the engine oil, filter and spark plugs in my 1999 Volvo 940 (1996 cc). Upon starting up, the engine runs at lower rpm and "hiccups" at idling.


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

2006 Jetta TDI Stalls in gear


These little engines(although very good little engines)have a problem with carbon build up in the intake manifold. It builds up so bad it begins to choke the engine off. The only solution is to remove the intake and soak with a good solvent over night and will generally take you a good couple of hours to clean out to get to "like new" again. Once this is accomplished, it's like driving your car new again!!

It had 85,000 miles on it. one day it bagan to idle rough but seemed fine when at higher sppeds/rpms. after a weekm I took it to the dealership and it turned out that a few of the coils/springs were shot. they also replaced my spark plugs, costing me about $550 total. But the car runs great again.
