    I have a similar problem to 'spantechauto' - when idling, normally in traffic queues, idle speed erratic - hunting. When driving power uneven.

That sounds about right, the idle speed may not even be manually settable due to emissions regulations.
I know for sure you can't adjust the idle mixture anymore; that is determined by sensors and the on-board computer.
There may still be adjustments on some cars but they are often sealed with lead to avoid tinkering.

My vw golf 4 2.0l won't rave but idles roughly


check spark plugs and distributor. look for bad wear and missing parts. It must be a faulty spark plug which is not igniting fuel in one cylinder. If you decide to replace the plugs its best to change all of them.

When my 2005 chevy cavelier is idling (at stop lights, sitting in park, etc) where should the rpms be? I have a friend saying my rpms are too low when idling. Right now they are between 0 and 1. Thanks


Idle in park: 800-1100RPM is acceptable.
In drive: about 700RPM
Your idle speed is actually controlled by the idle air control motor also called the IAC. There isn't any idle adjustment you can manually set as the motor is fuel injected and EEC controls air and fuel mixture at idle.

VW Golf DOHC 14i 16V, hunting, starts and stops


There is a small vacuum pipe from the EGR solenoid that was disconnected, by reconnecting this pipe the problems (that I have had ever since I had a new head some 30,000 miles ago from a VW main dealer) have gone away.

My '98 polo 1.4 petrol is stalling when I put the clutch in to change down when attempting to stop. it is currently idling at around 750 rpm, is this to low? can the idle setting be what is causing the car...


you have a bad or dirty idle air control valve...It controls the air flow to the engine when at idle or when you release the accelerator pedal... when you press the pedal down it closes and when you release the pedal it opens and it is not opening fast enough to allow the car to breath causing it to stall

Idling problem


There is no idle screw or adjustment . It is fully controlled by the ECU. The throttle body will probably need cleaning and resetting .

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.
