My brother called me this evening because he thinks he has a problem
with his VW Polo (1.0 litre, V-reg). He says the engine 'judders'
sometimes, but only when it's warmed up. He says it happens when using
lots of throttle between 2000 and 3000RPM, and also when idling (but
not enough to make it stall). I'm guessing it's a misfire of some
kind, would that be the best guess? I'm visiting on Saturday anyway,
so I said I would have a drive and a look under the bonnet. I can
check for the obvious ignition stuff (HT leads, spark plugs, dizzy
cap), any suggestions for other stuff to check? I've told him it could
be a dodgy sensor or similar, in which case it would have to go to a
garage, but I'd be grateful for any tips of things I can check for on
