    it wont run right

    hi,got a mk4 1.6 16valve sxi,
    it wont idle properly,its droping below then cuts out & the emission warning light is now on.
    it will run ok if i floor it every where but if i have to slow down it stuters.
    any ideas?could it be the fuel pressure regulator?
    cleaned the plugs & they are all fine.
    cheers.

    Give the EGR valve a clean. If this helps then replace with a new genuine part. Also try cleaning the throttle body out. Do a search for these things, lots of info here.

    Easier to get a new EGR. Cleaning it often would get a bit boring after a while. I believe it can be deleted from the ECU on drive-by-wire engines.
