    Default 206 GTI running problem

    Has anyone had any experience with the 206 GTI being very lethargic on opening the throttle quickly, sounds like the ignition is retarded (OK when idling though) or perhaps not enrichening the fuel under acceleration?

    Graham,

    Isn't that the symptom they get when those bellows things (can't remember the name of them) near the intake plenum stuff up? I think there's two of them.
    Usually one blows and there appears to be no difference & then they twig the second one has gone wrong too.
    I think Brad once wrote up a posting about them.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    I had no idea they were there, does sound a bit like it when the intake hose is removed.

    I've had a similar problem with my GTi6.

    If the car has been unused for a few days, sometimes after starting, the engine doesn't want to rev unless lots of throttle is applied.

    If I leave it warm up for a few minutes, it returns to normal, so I've learned to live with it!

    The only time my GTi has been a little sluggish to get going is if i'm in a hurry to get going and dont let the fuel pump prime properly before starting the engine. It tends to idle a bit roughly and then almost stall when you give the throttle a bit of a stab. I've now found it easier to simply let the fuel pump prime the system and then i'm right.

    Interesting about it being sluggish when you havent driven it for a while. I wont be driving mine for a week or so * * but i'll let you know what it's like when i get back behind the wheel.

    Ditto, but there was also a specific cold start patch for the ECU ..

    I have this too. Once , a long time ago, when they hooked up the diag computer thing to it, it was giving out intermittent oxygen sensor faults. They couldn't ever reproduce the problem though, so they never did anything about it.

    It seems to only happen once in a blue moon, and only once or twice during the first ~5 mins of driving in a cold morning.. I just live with it.

    The one I'm looking at does it all the time but it is worse when cold.
    I was thinking oxygen sensor and have recommended the owner take it to somebody who has diagnostic facilities.

    I hope our oxy sensors aren't made by the same dodgy mob that made the COM2000's!!!!
