Poor idling and frequent stalling on VW Fox
we have an A reg Volkswagen Fox that has had a very annoying intermittent fault...every so often it will stop when idling..often at the most inappropriate place (!)..then if you wait for almost exactly 10 minutes it will always then start again...follows this regular pattern every time..have had two RAC breakdown mechanics who have looked at it an just shrugged their shoulders without a clue! help!!
Have changed all 4 ignition coils...have changed air filter...fault follows such a regular pattern..is waiting for almost exactly ten minutes before the car will restart
Thanks for your reply...still think that the "cooling off" period of almost exactly 10 minutes before the car will start again, is significant...is something overheating then getting the chance to cool again to start?..why would a short ten minute wait solve an air leak problem?
