Quote from: Type17 on 07 June 2022, 07:50 AMRegarding the stalling, have you checked the CO/mixture? - on any K-Jet car I've had, a weak mixture causes hot stalling when selecting gears.Obviously, with a vacuum leak, the mixture will be weakened by unmetered air, but if fixing the leaks hasn't helped much, it could be just a bad air/fuel setting.It could also be a low system pressure - I had that issue with a Mk1 Golf GTI (also K-Jet) - needs a properly-plumbed pressure gauge inserted into the plumbing in the right place (or a Bosch specialist) to check it, but not usually an expensive fix (re-shimming a return valve in the Metering Head).PS: I knew that car (to see) at shows in Dublin - looks similar to mine, and had a fairly similar registration number (see my sig below)
