    Hi,

    I have decided to fix up my car from all the issues it has as I'll be keeping it for another year, from the first few days that I bought this car this issue occurred to me. When the car is cold and you drive first few miles its all fine, however after long drives or going heavy on the throttle, the car likes to die when in neutral and pulling up to a stop, then when idling the RPM's are very unstable hovering between 900-1100. I did a little reading and heard it could be the lambda sensor, some people also said cleaning the throttle body can help. I was wondering if anyone had similar trouble.

    I'll post a link to a video I quickly recorded to show this issue, which also you can hear a ticking noise coming from the left hand side. Its much louder on the camera than it actually is when standing by the car but I am curious to what it could be and if its an easy fix. The car has 162,000 miles on the clock, which I assume for a petrol engine is quite a lot but apparently has been serviced well, at least for past few years.



    Thanks in Advance,
    Mac.

    Edit: Also as you can see towards the end of the video, after I rev it up and the RPM's are falling down to 1k, they like to dip below 1k and thats when sometimes the car will shut off, no matter if driving or stop. When RPM's are falling especially when dropping into neutral when driving high revs.

    Thanks for the reply. Im assuming you replaced the egr valve completely with a new one? If so, was it a costly expense? Or is it a matter of giving it a good clean etc?

    The new egr valve cost around 166.00 for a pierberg one i didnt clean the old one as i already sold the car to my mates son. I frequently buy and sell Vw vehicles as a secound job.

    Hi I have a Golf MK4 1.6. It has the same problem. The EPC light comes on then the revs fluctuate between 900-1100. The engine goes off in the middle of the highway! Or in traffic while driving slowly. Yesterday I started the engine but when I stepped on the gas pedal, no response. Throttle was cleaned and after the engine cooled down, the accelerator pedal responded. But the RPM still fluctuates. This problem recurs mainly when the temperatures are high like at lunch time.
    We run diagnostics and the following codes appeared;
    1. 18010 - P1602 - POWER SUPPLY (B+) TERMINAL 30:LOW VOLTAGE
    2. 17850 - P1442 - EGR VALVE POSITION SENSOR (B) CIRCUIT HIGH
    3. 17978 - P1570 - ENGINE CONTROL MODULE DISABLED
    4. 17972 - P1564 - THROTTLE VALVE CONTROL PART-J338: INSUFFICIENT VOLTAGE DURING BASIC SETTING
    5. 17950 - P1542 - ANGLE SENDER 1 FOR THROTTLE VALVE DRIVE-G187:IMPLAUSIBLE SIGNAL
    6. 17987 - P1579 - THROTTLE VALVE CONTROL MODULE-J338:ADAPTATION NOT STARTED
    7. 17581 - P1544 - ANGLE SENDER 2 FOR THROTTLE VALVE DRIVE-G187:SIGNAL TOO HIGH
    8. 17952 - P1544 - ANGLE SENDER 1 FOR THROTTLE VALVE DRIVE-G187:SIGNAL TOO HIGH
    9. 16486 - P0102 - MASS AIR FLOW CIRCUIT-G70:LOW INPUT
    10. 16497 - P0113 - INTAKE AIR TEMPERATURE SENSOR 1 CIRCUIT-G42 HIGH

    What could be the issue?
    Thanks in advance.

    Check the battery voltage with the engine running. Do those codes clear and then come back? Remember, do not unplug anything with the ignition on as this can store spurious fault codes.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Hi, sorry it took so long to get reply.
    I finally got back and checked the battery voltage. When the car is on, 13.97. When the car is off, 12.48.

    After watching your video it seams to me like either a fuel problem or inlet manifold seal leak which is a common issue on high mileage engines. A faulty o2 sensor causes hunting due to the ecu being sent the Wrong signal try checking this via live data if possible if that fine check the manifold seal.
