Bawbag posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustHi I’ve had a read of the FAQ and found the diagnostic page useful over the years, but now asking for some advice if anyone else has had the same. The engine has had good quality ignition parts including a genuine VW blue temp sensor about a year ago. The symptoms have been ongoing for longer than this so they aren’t stopping the car from driving but I’m keen to fix them. 1. The idle creeps up to about 1300 or so occasionally, and comes back down eventually. I think this is only when the engine is up to temperature. I’ve tried unplugging the blue temp sensor following the normal procedure of when engine is up to temp to reset ECU. 2. Two flat spots or ‘blips’ in the revs around 1700 and 2100 as the revs climb. Any suggestions welcome. I’d be really keen to know how to test all the sensors too. I’m going to do a check of the blue temp sensor with a multi meter. Does anyone know how to test the throttle position sensor and any of the other sensors? Cheers
Afternoon All, I have been looking around, and struggling like hell to find out what some of the things are inside the engine of my '96 1.4 Polo. I am expecting some ridicule because some of the following pictures are probably very obvious, but I have broad shoulders :-). I am looking for the TPS so I can check that as after reading lots and watching plenty of videos, it MIGHT explain what is happening with the car at the moment, but can't find too much that resembles anything on the videos etc. I would appreciate someone telling me what the photos are of though, so 1, I learn more and 2, Can involve or discount from current issues. Thanks
