I have a very intermittent problem with a VW Golf. Sometimes when approaching a road junction or roundabout at very low revs, when I go to accelerate , there is a very brief period of time, say 2,3 seconds where nothing happens ! It only happens every now and then, but is getting dangerous. Any ideas ?

It always happens when at very low speeds and feels like a fuel starvation. Does this still sound like a coil problem ?
