Question type: Maintenance & repair

Car Will run but not idle

1 Answer


There could be several problems with your engine and it's difficult to try and diagnose with so little to go on. It's possible the timing belt tensioner has failed which will cause the timing to be slightly out which would mean the engine won't idle. Best course of action would be to take it to a VW specialist for diagnosis.
