Engine cutting out at low speed

Post by IWRA » Tue Aug 13, 2019 3:20 pm

I am experiencing issues with the engine cutting out at low speed and low revs in second gear. It happens mainly in very slow moving start stop traffic. I'm not sure whether it's stalling or the start/stop system causing it. It restarts when I put my foot on the clutch but is very inconvenient. I have the 115HP petrol engine with 6 speed gearbox. Does anyone else have this problem?

Sounds like a start stop issue if pressing the clutch pedal down starts the engine again.
Currently considering options.

Try driving with the stop/start switched off...see if it still happens..

Having switched the stop/start off over the last week I've not had any problems

That's very interesting...at least it no longer cuts out, but it would seem that something is wrong with your stop/start sensor........get the dealer to check it out.

Mine does the same now and again. Pressing the clutch normally restarts the engine, but it has asked me to use the key once or twice.

I to have a T-cross 1.0 litre 115 engine which cuts out at slow speeds in 2nd gear, this is when I am driving up an incline or turning round a junction. I took the car in to the dealers with the problem, and on the test drive with me, the technician agreed something was not right. A different technician worked on the car and after his test drive found nothing wrong. On collecting the car I was told to drive in a lower gear which would be first gear and it is only a 1.0 litre engine what do you expect.
The SEAT Arona website is also complaining about this problem.
IT is a nice car but could not recommend a 1.0 Litre engine

I haven't taken mine in to complain about the cutting out perhaps waiting for someone to say there is a software fix for it. I can't say I'm surprised by VW's and dealers response given their poor customer service attitude. You've only got to look on the T-Roc forum to see how they are not dealing with kangaroo issues.

The wife insists on persevering with Stop Start and the result is she has stalled several times at least once resulting in a mini meltdown . Usually happens paradoxically in stop start traffic ,uphill when too close to car/bus in front so maybe the collision avoidance is coming into play as well?
Car has only cut out at a roundabout with me at the wheel on one occasion and that was more due to my unfamiliarity when it was new.
Engine loosening up nicely now .
