    Hi Guys,

    I'm new here, however, i have searched for some advice regarding my car. As the title states i have a 1.2 TSI Leon Copa, and i am having problems with my engine ticking over then once it does it settles at 600 RPM (which seems pretty low) as it was usually lying at the 800/900 mark.

    I was just wondering if anyone could suggest anything i could do differently or if there is an issue with the car.

    Thanks :)

    Did post in the wrong section initially hoping this is the right one :)

    If there are any faults with the running of the car a warning light will normally come on unless it's purely mechanical which is unlikely.
    Are you sure it actually has a fault?

    I don't think you have a problem. Your car was maybe revving a little higher than normal in the cold weather but slightly differently now that your coolant won't be as cold.
    Personally I wouldn't worry too much unless mil light is illuminated. Only other thing you can do is have a diagnostic check performed on it for any underlying issue.
    Sorry can't help much more

    Thanks for your help, i came looking for advice and youve given me a load. If it continues i will get a diagnostic done on it.

    Thanks again :)

    I used to have a 1.2tsi Leon. With AC on itnticked over at 800, with AC off it ticked over at 600.

    Not sure if this info helps.
