Hesitation and jumping issue
« on: Jun 03, 18, 22:31 »
I have had my R for about 4 years now. Only 115,000km on it.

Every so often when I am driving the will feel like it is not getting gas and will lose power. This only happens for a second which causes it to jump the the RPM to fluctuate. It is really annoying and sometimes dangerous when turning an intersection. Also when at a stop light the rpms will drop to about 200 for a second and then come back up.

There is no fault codes that show up or CEL. I have had the fuel filter replaced, the fuel pump, new spark plugs.

Has any one had these issues or does anyone have any suggestions on what to look at?

Sounds like it could be the crank position sensor. Had similar symptoms on my mk5 rabbit and it eventually threw a code that pointed to the crank position sensor.
