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!
