8 vavle GTi?
If so clean your throttle body out

Common fault on the 8Valves

Dont need to take it off just remove the plastic pipe that feeds the throttle body from air box so you can look into the body. edge the throttle open,clean it with a rag+carb cleaner and your done

either that or the fuel pump relay which is a common fault with the mk3, chrisirish is your mk3 man. next time it happends try to listen to see if you hear some clicking from the fuse box area.

MK3 Forums came back with the T/B but that sounds about right too tbh

yeah worth checking them. but normaly on the relay it wont start up again for a few seconds. untill you'll hear the relay click, then away you go again. think they overheat and cut out yano.

Swap the GTi lump for a VR6 lump

If it happens when your slowing down like at traffic lights then its the throttle body. If it does it randomly as your driving then its the ECU Relay or the Fuel Pump relay...to be honest the amount of hassle I have had with both over the last couple of weeks, just change them!

Nah the relays, just a £5 tin of carb cleaner on the throttle body, change the breather pipes for oil breathers?

To be fair the performance on the 2.0 8vs is average anyway, it'll not make a great deal of difference, alot of mechinacs don't like them or induction kits. I replaced my one on the rocker cover with on and then the pipe at the top with one as well.

But if yours is just cutting out when slowing down its is prob the throttle body getting gunked up, spray it, run it, spray it while running. Done. It'll struggle to start and run when its full of carb cleaner, but after it clears its all good!
