1992 Volkswagen Golf Problems
Reverse gear failures and noise in the manual transmission models are common.
Electrical issues that are difficult to diagnose—and sometimes intermittent—are typically due to ground wiring issues. The most troublesome ground locations are under the battery or at the engine.
An engine coolant leak may develop, most commonly from the water pump. The valve cover gasket is also prone to leaking engine oil.
Heater core leaks are common in this model, more so if the wrong anti-freeze/coolant is used in the cooling system.
