Acceleration Hiccups

Car is a 1.8SE '99 (non turbo) with just over 100k on the clock. Recently I have noticed that when I put my foot down on the gas at low revs, as the car accelerates, it starts to hiccup, i.e split second loss of power, then it comes back. Changed the MAF a few months back.

Nothing to do with the plugs or timing? I had a similar problem a few years back on a Laguna and it was all down to the plugs. New plugs and new leads sorted it all out. Gave the guy a tenner to get himself a few beers. Spose it would have been quite easy for him to have ripped me off, but he was a good bloke.

How low revs are you talking here?

The 1.8 20V se is totally pants under 2000revs for acceleration according to a VAG specialist I asked. I thought I had a problem with my '97 20v se as it goes well above 2 grand but nothing to talk about under it.

Maybe he told me porkies, I don't know, just thought I'd pass this on! crazy.gif
