Hi guys,

Bought a 2008 mk5 r32 about 4 months ago, in the past month the car has started hunting when at idle (after starting the car and when stopped in traffic) the revs rise to 1500 and sit there for a few seconds before dropping back down and then it climbs again.

Any help on what the issue could be before I start to do anything.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Have you a Vac  leak somewhere?

Might also be a knackered battery.

So... upon inspecting the battery to check what I need for a new one I found this

Swimming in about 8cm. The entire boot and everything around has always been bone dry. So I can only assume that it’s come from the battery itself. πŸ™„πŸ™„
