    Exclamation Help Needed!

    I have a MK4 1.4 16v and am having big problems.

    Every time i start the car, it either judders big time and cuts out, or i have to plant foot on the gas and it'll judder slightly then rev up. This is then followed by the noise of a lot of liquid moving in engine bay, is that normal? When i do start it, it turns over fine.

    The main problem I'm having is that everytime i change up a gear and put my foot on the gas, it will really judder two or three times before it actually accelerates. When i say judder, i mean like it almost throws you forward.

    Someone suggested idle control valve as it mainly occurs at low revs, but once its on, it idles fine and i have no warning lights on. Does this sound like a fuel problem?

    Cheers in adavance!

    anyone got an idea? if it helps, had a look at spark plugs today which were only changed within last 4 months or so and they seem much blacker than should be. does this mean overfuelling, i.e mixture is too rich?
