Vw fox misfiring

Recommended Posts

My misses has a vw fox 1.2 2009/58 today while driving I notice the car was pulling back as she was accelerating. And while idling the engine is jumping. I'm not too good with cars and was just wondering if anyone knew of this.also while driving the car seems to be loosing power.

Thanks

Although I have a 1.4 4 cylinder Model, Mine was and still can be very lumpy at idle. I changed the spark plugs as the ones that had been put in weren't gapped properly and then I changed the coilpack. The leads seem to be okay. I also changed the lambda sensor as my engine light was on and this is what the code reader said. These together reduced the amount of lumpiness a lot but it still appears from time to time which I would eventually like to sort. I've never had the problem of losing power just having to give it a few revs to settle it back to normal idle if it's jumping. Hope that helps. it's best to get a code reader to check exactly if there is anything.

Thanks think I'll take it to the garage and get the codes read to see exactly what' wrong with it 👌
