    Mk4 sxi problem! Help!

    Hi guys, having some trouble with my 1.6 sxi (mk4). I'm getting a smell of petrol inside the car when its running idle, but cannot smell it when driving along. Also, the engine seems to be running a tad fast on idle as well. please note there are no modifications to the engine, and this problem has only just started today. any suggestions? (would be much appreciated!!) Thanks!

    sounds like automatic choke is stuck on....

    have you checked the area for fuel leaks? or a split in a air hose?

    a split in the air hose can lean out the fueling system and cause it to rev a little higher. and more air would mean it required more fuel (in your case possible over fueling)

    yes ive checked for any leaks or splits and couldn't find any (but then again it is in the dark, so i might have missed it). i'll have a look at the choke and see if there's anything wrong with that cheers!
