Hi Scirocco Register!
My name is Will, and in January of this year I was lucky enough to find a lovely K reg GT2. The car was sold on here, and has Scirocco Reg stickers in the windows so I thought I'd come here for some advice.
Brief background: used as daily driver, never missed a beat, Weber carb, just been to Wales and back (300+ round trip), fluid levels fine, never overheated, timing always bob on, engine feels powerful and energetic, described as "sweet as a nut" by RAC patrolman today.
Problem: the car severely lossed power when nearing the top of a hill today - juddering, rapid decline in revs. I managed to get to the top, and pulled off the road to ring for assistance as I was concerned to carry on. RAC came out, checked it, and followed me home, and it ran perfectly.
Could this signify a failing petrol pump, or a faulty fuel line? I imagine these components work hardest when on a steep incline so maybe the first places where the components show a weakness before failing entirely. Is it worth me taking it to my garage (a trusted place) and explaining what happened, so I can nip the problem in the bud? Or is it too hard to nail down what it is yet, as the fault has only occured once?
Many thanks for any advice offered. Cheers!
