SOURCE: vw polo 1.4 tdi idle problem

Hey.. i just had this exact problem in my GTI and after 2 weeks of trial and error, I had to replace my Coolant Temp Sensor.. it was bad so it threw off the fuel metering valve which was part of the crazy idling problem.. I cant be 100% sure because our cars are not exactly the same but I mean we have the EXACT same symptoms so .. justa suggestion. Use the VAG-COM sensor reader and you'll be golden.

SOURCE: volkswagon bora 130 tdi is juddering with asr

asr works in conjunction with stop a wheel it(the car)thinks is loosing grip, from spinning.By applying the brakes to the wheel that is loosing grip,so the car is applying the brake. hence the juddering. if it stops when you turn it (asr)off it must be a sensor fault.easy way is to plug in the diagnostic computer to pinpoint faulty unit. if you dont drive very enthusiastically,then turn asr off until next mot/service.get back if you need any more info ....

SOURCE: 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.

2003 ford Taurus been sitting up try to start just spins over want start

Crank but no start is either no spark or no fuel to engine.
Best way to narrow it down is to just spray a 1 second dose of starting fluid into the air intake before you try to start it. If it does start then die it is lack of fuel or bad fuel to engine. In all the modern EFI cars the most likely faults on fuel failure with fuel in car are:
1. fuel pump failure.
2. fuel pump relay
3. fuel filter plug

If it fails to fire on the starting fluid it is lack of spark, and the trouble shooting procedure will be to investigate the coil pack.

I have check engine lcode p2187 on my mazda 6 2003

i had the same code....did you resent the ECM? If so then it takes about 40-50 miles for the computer to relearn the new stats of the engine (intake air temp and volume/fuel mix..etc..).
If you need to reset it...just disconnect the battery for 30 mins and then reconnect it. When you start the car back up let it idle 5 mins before you drive. It'll act funny for 30-40 miles then it should run smooth. Let me know if you have more issues. You can also hit us up at or
