Thread: Polo 1.4 won't idle

    Polo 1.4 won't idle

    My son has recently had a vw polo 1.4 mk3. He's been driving it for a few days with no problems. The other night it lost power and cut out had to be towed back home. Charged battery. Took distributor cap off. Checked spark plugs. Found out it needs new air filter. Still wouldn't start last night. Managed to start it this morning with foot on accelerator. Won't idle. Any ideas. He's new to cars

    look for air leaks on the pipes that go to the inlet manifold. The idle valve in the throttle body is probably to blame.
