It's your idle air valve located on the backside of your intake round with two large lines going to it make sure you check junkyards first for one because you'll faint when you hear the price at the parts counter.

Revs high when i change gear


Is it possible the clutch pedal is interfering with the throttle? Start the engine in neutral and allow it to idle. Press only the clutch pedal down and see if this increase the engine speed. If it does speed up the engine and slows back down when you release the clutch then somehow this operation is where your fault lies. If it doesn't alter the idle speed, then rev your engine and release the throttle to see if it returns to idle immediately. If it is slow to return to idle then your throttle cable could be sticking. This means when you change gear lifting off the throttle has little effect and depressing the clutch to change gear causes the engine to race as the throttle is still partially open.

My 2003 neon stalls as soon as I take my foot off of the accelerator pedal or slow down it just dies....i put it in neutral and rev the engine and it revs to 4000 rpm and just breaks up....i just changed...


you may have a dirty fuel filter or the throttle plate may need cleaning.the throttle plate is the valve that moves in the intake when you move the gas pedal.if they get too dirty they cause a restriction in the intake and cause the car to stall.it also could be a tps sensor problem but this should put the check engine light on but not always.the breaking up of the motor when you rev it to 4000 rpm`s is the rev limiter in the computer that shuts down the firing of the plugs and injecotrs so you don`t cause damage to the motor when there is no load on it.

Mk4 golf 1.4 2001 rev counter fluctuates engine cuts out when slowing down and fuel consumption is really bad


Hi crossley 82
Check the engine coolant sensor. This sensor controls the fuel / air mixture, and was a common problem on that model.
Best of luck

Chugs, acts like it's not getting gas once warmed up. Idle's fine


This problem can be several things. When your engine is cold, your computer is in a "closed loop" and just pretty much keeps the engine running until warmed up. After reaching operation temperature, the computer starts reading all the sensors. If one sensor is not connected or is defective, you will experience performance problems. Most of the time this will turn on the check engine light, but not always. Second is the fuel pump. This too will cause erratic engine problems.
