Volkswagen Golf QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Hi there, have an old citi golf,
Problem: Starts fine, runs ok, accelerates to touch immediately, however when driving the car, after a short while it starts jerking and cuts out!
Just had full service, replaced the battery, TCI unit, fuel pump, carburator and temp sensor/sensor unit and yet the problem pesists.
Not sure if the problem could be electrical, feels like this car has a mind of its own, please advise, many thanks.
The problem happened last night when I noticed the temperature going beyond half. I managed to reach home but when I opened the bonnet I noticed the exapansion tank was full of coolant, not circulating and the fun was not running. I waited for the system to cool off and when I open it most of the coolant had leaked off at the pipe which connects to the engine (I assume that is were the thermostat is located). I put in fresh water and some coolant and it appeared to have behaved. This morning the same thing happened so I had to park it. What could be the problem and what is the solution? It is a 1.8cc 4 cylinder.
i have check the water pomp (is ok),the termostat is ok,i repair the head of motor and the problem is still not fixed pls helppp mee..
Ive changed da o2 sensor nd gave it a full service and its still eatn the juice. Any help wud be gratefull as im stumped. Thanks
i think its the distributor or coil,or possibly main fuse,the car seldom has the tendency to cut power and has a hard start.
How much to Fix?
changing timing belt
had no heat changed thermostat-removed panel to check heater flappers they are okay. Still very little heat. Drove car forgot to put reservoir cap on and drove the car just barely made it home it ran so bad but gauge never read over 190.
the code come up says low input to intake air temperature sensor that is built in the mass air flow sensor put 2 different mass air flow sensors on both do the same code comes up
when I start the car no EPC light but when I press down on the gas pedal the Epc light goes on and the car moves like a turtle and I already changed the brake switch Could it be the alternator or battery or does the gas pedal need to be replace??????? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!
Is there a internet site for the codes
it is a 2.0L engine, my rpms wont go over 3000rpm which is stopping it from shifting properly, wont go any faster then 110kms and sometimes only 70kms.i have back pressure in my gas tank, but whas told that that is a good thing. my epc light was on but i changed the throttle control valve and it whent out. i also did a complete tune up,plugs,oil,air filter etc. i know it is something small and simple but im just not sure where to start.. any ideas? thanks in advance
I have replaced heater matrix but there is trapped air coming back up into my water tank it bubbles and overflows if i take the cap off after driver. Been told its the head but no creamy stuff on oil cap or dipstick and no white smoke. Also the air blocks from pipes have been cleared..any suggestions please?
Its a peugeot 307cc
it only happens on cold days in the morning. my engine half injection half carberator 1.6
also after driving for a few miles and stop iget it hard to start again but ie i wait foe 10 to15 minuites it will start easy
It is wearing out. Have replaced twice in the last 12 months. It is a ribbed belt. But the water pump pulley is flat. This pulley doesn’t run on the back of the belt. This I think is the problem. But this might be the correct set up for the belt. Also have checked all pulleys if running true. All ok. Has anyone come across problems similar???
what would cause the break lights not to work or come on even though fuses have been replaced and no burnt out blubs
silley question doe,s any one know where there might be a 210 datsun besides the junk yard or china?their not much to look at but they last better then a v.w and coast alot less to fix
i have a 71 super beetle what would make a few of the larger fuses pop out when driving down the road the flashers or trun signals where also brighter then usaual
ikeep on going through throttle cables is is my 3d in 4 years!What would be the cause of them breaking?allso what would cause the gear shift to shudder?
When parking or turning the wheel at a slow acceleration the car squeals loudly. Could it be power steering? I checked the power steering fluid and it is in between the marks for being fine. What to do?
I check the fluids and notice the water is low. Sometimes it gets so low the water light comes on in the dash board.
last year i had my timing belt replaced do i need to have it replacd again or will it be ok to just replace the water pump.
It sounds as if the car is under stress whenever I make turns, especially left turns. The noise is a kind of low-pitched squealing. I haven't noticed any fluid leaking onto the ground.
sometimes it works.. sometime it doesnt..
At first it was very low pressure in the 1st gear,yesterday while driving I put it in the wrong gear( i believe it slipped in the reverse gear and it made a loud raddling noise. It will go into gears easy, but it ain't moving at all. Just making the loud noise
It has good fuel pressure but stop at the fuel distributor no fuel going out to the engine.the fuel line was dry going to injector tip, the distributor looks new, my friend got this car a year ago.I need help or idea with this car. thanks
Here is the fact and symptoms:
Car : VW Polo 2002 1.4L Manual (car not listed above)
1. Chirping noise when idle, Noise goes away when in clutch
2. Whinning noise when driving, Noise goes away when driving
3. On jack, left wheel spin up, knocking sound can be heard from gearbox.
4. Oil level - Not sure
People said, change the gearbox, throwout bearing fails, bad bad bearing inside tranny; but i`m not sure which,
GTI 1.8L 16v what we did clean air intake, throtle body, checked fuel pressure 40lbs and cold start valve working and has a good spark but no start. need help :(
fuel pump seems ok you can hear noise,but never check fuel filter,fuel distributor, fuel pressure and fuel regulator
