1994 Volkswagen Golf Problems
Reverse gear failures and noise in the manual transmission models are common.
One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.
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.
