    Hi Guys

    Having an issue with my idle. When driving around its fine, as soon as i come to a stop my rev's drop to around 500 mark then bounce back to 1k mark. Its does this for a few seconds and then fine. It does this everytime i stop. Its not stalled but getting very close. I've tried searching but cant find anything for my year or model.

    Can anyone help its S reg 1.8T

    Cheers
    Si

    Sounds like an air leak... year/model is largely irrelevant in this case as they all end up with split pipes etc...

    Look for split pipes under the inlet manifold and SAI system....
