2004 VW passat 1.6 petrol saloon , cant keep rpm constant keeps bouncing up and down about 1 or 2 increments on the rpm gauge only really happens at low rpm not as bad at high rpm and it idles perfect so I'm wondering if it Is the throttle pedal sensor check engine light is not on either

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! Is the check engine light on the dash? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Feb 13 '19 at 19:42
  • No the check engine light is not on – Patrick Ingle Feb 13 '19 at 20:19
  • What do you mean by "...really happens at low rpm not as bad at high rpm" like the rpm bounce while you are driving? What transmission it has? a manual or auto? Is it a new thing with this car? did any maintenance, repair were done recently? – Rémi Feb 13 '19 at 20:48
  • No it doesnt do it while driving only in neutral and makes it annoying to take off as the rpm is jumping up a down then it's fine once you get going it's a manual but it's not the transmission I'm sure of that and I just bought the car – Patrick Ingle Feb 13 '19 at 21:20
