P 205 keeps cutting out

3 posts in this topic

J reg P205 1.4 cabriolet (skip) Has been occasionally missing a beat for no obvious reason for 4 years. Last month it cut out whilst doing 50mph and wouldn't restart until the car had come to a halt. It then ran fine for 3 weeks until last week when it died 6 times in 3 miles but each time started again after a couple of mins. Now it runs for about 20 seconds. By the time you try to check everything it runs again. :ffs: Any ideas please?

The idle control valve always used to cause these type of problems on the GTi, not sure about a 1.4 but I'd guess it's a pretty similar setup.
