Does the vehicle ever misfire while driving??
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes it does you always have to have your foot on the gas and if you dont you have to feather the pedal to get it to smooth out. It will not stay steady at any speed without playing with the gas pedal
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 4 years ago.
Unplug the ect sensor and see if the vehicle runs better since you have a fault for it.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Where is the cts located I dont see anything for a sensor in the coolant system I have not got under the car to look yet though
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 4 years ago.
The coolant temp sensor is located on the back of the cylinder head on the coolant flange.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
thanks i will look at it in the morning if it runs better is it a bad sensor
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 4 years ago.
Correct because you have a fault for it
