2004 Volkswagen Golf TDI Problems

Oil Leaks From Camshaft Chain Tensioner and Valve Cover Gaskets

Engine oil leaks are common from the valve cover gaskets and camshaft chain tensioner gasket.

Use correct oil/filter to prevent sludge accumulation
To avoid sludge accumulation inside the engine, our technicians recommend using the proper synthetic oil with the appropriate oil filter.
Check Engine Light Due to Issues With Glow Plugs/Wiring Harness

Because of issues with the glow plugs and/or the glow plug wiring harness from the control relay, the Check Engine Light may illuminate. Our technicians tell us there is a service bulletin, not a recall from Volkswagen regarding replacement of the glow plugs on 2004-2005 model years only.
