Is it the MAF?

1 post in this topic

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone can help me. I don't have a massive amount of knowledge about cars so you'll have to forgive me. I've got a MK 4 1.8 GTI S reg, the old girls done 126K bought it as my first car 6 months ago.

On several occassions at low revs in 2nd the car stalls and won't start unless left for 20-30 seconds.

On one of these occassions I started the car and tried to rev and there was absolutely nothing foot to the floor.... all of a sudden it burst in to life and was fine again.

It's only happens in 2nd gear, although I believe linked sometimes it feels strangled in any gear and then just bursts back to normal. Acceleration sometimes feels limited

A friends suggested it might be a sensor on the Mass airflow meter? And I should unplug this

Does anybody have a suggestions?
