    I appreciate your suggestions Jack.
    I have to be away for a week now, but when I get back I will find look at this on the VCDS and let you know.
    What is hard to understand is that the idling/power problem just happened, out of the blue, one day when it was started up.
    I have worked on cars of all sorts since the 70's myself, so I am well trained to notice things well before they go to crap, but there was nothing to warn me on this one. Feeling humbled by an old VW Polo!

    David,

    Yeah been tinkering with toys since the 70's myself and stuff bites me in the ass too.

    I do not know everything and I'm bound to screw something up pretty routine, usually it's my poor writing skills or what it seems to be lack of empathy when I write comes across like an asshole.

    You will find it don't worry.

    Jack,
    I appreciate you providing PDF of the engine system. Being in German my schoolboy German could not do it, but I found an English version knowing what the title should look like.
    For anyone else needing it in English, look here:https://vdocuments.mx/download/168-b...marelli-1avpdf or PM / email me and I can send a PDF on to you.

    Hi Jack,
    Been away, so only now can I get back to trying all the suggestions.
    So probably going to be a holiday period job!
