    1.2 engine woes

    Bit of advice required...

    Mate of mine has a 52 reg 1200 Ibiza. Had a problem with its EGR valve which has now been replaced however it is now suffering from what is described as lack of power and juddering under acceleration. He's been grafted by a garage who took him for £400 before he insisted on the egr valve being replaced at a VW specialist. This has solved a juddering/ cutting out problem but now he's down on power.

    Any help gratefully received.

    not sure if its connected but the last two times I suffered form this with the golf it was - MAF Sensor & Crank Sensor - might be a long shot?

    Could be many things on a 1.2, are there any faults stored? This may help point in a general direction.

    Strange it's running fine (as in no juddering or rough running) but down on power

    We had two 1.2's in last week that had jumped timing.
