  1. Thank you! I'll take it to the garage and see what they can do with the information yourself and LindyLou kindly provided! As for removing each sensor and trial running it - i don't have the skill or knowledge for that unfortunately! And even still, the car doesn't misbehave in a regular pattern - some days he is fine, others he kicks up a storm until he settles down again shortly after. I'm definitely thinking coolant sensor now you and LindyLou mention it! For pic, see above! I'll take more later!
  2. Firstly thank you all for the suggestions and information! I didn't even consider a sensor as being a probable cause! Thinking about it - my temperature gauge doesn't move up from the lowest temp - i've never thought about this before until you mentioned it. The revs do happen more often when the weather is warm, or if i have recently turned the engine back on after a short break. Sounds like this could be the issue.

  3. Hi all, Bought my car beginning of this year, It's a 1997 1.0 VW lupo. It's done approximately 32,000 miles and pretty much brand new internally and externally for its age So, 2 months ago i stalled it at lights, upon getting the engine back on the revs were creeping up really high on their own without pushing the gas pedal. It stayed this way through gear changes, to the point where i had to pull over and turn the engine off for a short while. Put it back on and the same thing occured while stationary, until it settled down and went normal - but the engine light came on!
