Erastic Idle on 106 gti

Post by steve_rutter » 05 Jun 2001, 15:27

His my 98 "R" 106 gti has developed an eratic idle and hesitates under acceleration (also stalls occassioanlly) - its an ntermitent fault - I've changed the plugs but this done nothing - think its probably one of the sensor or the actual ignition module - any ideas??

FYI - Turned out to be the MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor - a common fault on pugs apprently

If you put one of those cheap petrol filters in line it stops all the oil residue from contaminating the rubber diaphram inside the sensor. Also befor buying one they can be cleaned out by placing on a hot (no too much) radiator over night with some kitchen towel underneath. All the crap runs out.

A slightly shorter URL for those images of MAP sensors:
http://www.tuneparts.co.uk/map.htm
Get the Haynes manual for your car, read it, and understand it. It will give details of the MAP sensor, and how to remove and refit.
