Fuel starvation?

Post  Ben on Tue Aug 03, 2010 9:04 am

Hi everyone,

I seem to have a problem with the little polo, recently i'd run out of petrol and tried to fire it up...obviously no luck.......filled the tank and it's ok....but whilst driving along sometimes the car pulls back, loses power then it kicks in again within a second? bogs down?

it happens more when i turn corners.....even at idle it'll sometimes lose revs the a split second later regain them?

any ideas what may be up?

thanks

Ben
