My car drives normally within a 8 - 10Km distance non-stop but when I go beyond that then the temperature light pops, which requires me to stop to allow the engine to cool down. I do not understand what is wrong with my car and appreciate any assistance!

Two days ago the air bag lihgt came on, tonight the low beams decided to become very dim (high beams are fine). I ran a code check and it says the ingition coil A malfunction?
Could all this be the coil needing replacement?(and where is the coil ocated?)

Speedometer quit working after driving over speed bump. Speedometer recently fixed and shop stated it was faulty ground wire conntected to transmission. I am trying to locate the ground wire on the tranny to see if it was jarred loose after going over the speed bump.

Thank you,

I have a 2001 VW Golf TDI 4 cylinder. There has been a persistent problem of the engine dying. It usually occurs a couple of miles (at the most) after startup, and not all the time. I am able to restart within 10 to 30 seconds. I have no clue as to what triggers this occurrence. The car has approx. 35,000 miles on and is not driven everyday. I have kept up on oil changes and scheduled maintenace. I am the only owner of the car.

the engine dies while im driving, i changed the ECM twice and that didnt seem to work, now the car needs a new fuze almost every 3 blocks

I was quoted $120 for replacement of alternator, a/c and p/s belts. Went to pick up and bill was $330. No phone call, and I gave NO authorization for extra work. Difference seems to be $170 for "Repair broken bolt in a/c bracket to make belt fit." according to work order. Should I cancel check I HAD to write for repairs as owner is out of town until March 31st, and therefore was unavailable for me to speak with? And did I get overcharged?

Thank You,
Renai Nelson

and how do i take it out

Hi there...my Radiator fan wont start.. what makes the fan start???

I blew, what I believe, is the fuel pump/0-2 sensor fuse twice now. I had it in to my mechanic and he said the wiring to the fuel pump looks fine. Any ideas? Unfortunately I don't have an owner's manual, and the vw dealer wants me to buy one for $100! I don't have it, so I'm stuck! Help! Thank you...
