Rough starting! 2.0 16v

Postby Salter » Sun Jan 05, 2020 7:53 pm


Got an issue I can't resolve with start up of the car, any help would be appreciated please.

When starting the car from cold, for around a minute or 2, the car want's to cut out when pressing the accelerator pedal.

It start fine and ticks over ok, it's only once you press the accelerator, the revs drop as if it's going to cut out, if you let go of the pedal, tick over rises again.

If you let the car warm up a few mins, it doesn't do it, reminds me of an old manual choke cars!

Suspect either the inlet air temperature sensor or the coolant temperature sensor. Or, come to think of it, an air bubble in the coolant near the sensor.
