    Disconnect the egr value and see how it goes. That sorted my vw with a similar engine.

    I suspect it may be a dodgy oxogen sensor. Pre cat.

    p.skoda-yeti-outdoor-ae17ybb-606323104-0.jpg Oih, I resemble that remark.

    I have a Yeti.
    For me & the lass inside, they have turned out to be a fantastic buy.
    Had one 3 year ago, now got one of the last ones. New model is a Karoq.

    Difficult to diagnose. Find your reputable local vw specialist.

    My first guess would be that it sounds like a fuelling issue. Had a similar problem on an old CB500 motorbike- always happens when you slow down for tight turns/at lights (exact places you do not want to break down).

    Replace the fuel filter and check the lines are not blocked.

    Water in fuel filter, usually have a drain screw at bottom

    Hi Master, must agree the Yeti reviews have always been really good, just can’t understand why they only lasted about 7 years, was considering one about a year ago except I found the boot a bit small for my requirements and the fact they were being discontinued, I ended up getting the Kodiaq the Karoq was not out at the time

    I know that discontinued models are usually reduced, but it’s not all good news as the resale price when you sell reflect that it’s a model not made anymore, having said that if you keep hold of your Yeti for a good few years that becomes less important, I’m sure though you have bought an excellent motor.
