No it is impossible to say without testing the vehicle and doing a complete analysis with the correct diagnostic equipment.
These vehicle have numerous electrical faults that sometimes the VW dealer service centres cannot diagnose. What has been happening to you is the mechanics have been guessing what the problem is and just changing things without really identifying the actual cause - as you have now found. These are very unreliable cars so do not be fooled by the "german quality" label that people frequently and wrongly apply to German cars.
If you want and need a reliable car I would recommend you get rid of this Golf and get yourself a Mazda (and have any prospective used car thoroughly inspected before biuying). If you keep the Golf I guarantee it will give you much grief and cost you plenty more repairs.
the stop solenoid is on the diesel pump some of them were covered by a steel cover which u have to cut off to see the solenoid and then one of the wires that was goin to the immobillizer is from the ignition put it on the solenoid and it will start
golfs coldstart system works when you open door/shut door/put key in hole and turn on (in that order)if you delay puting belt on for longer than say 30 secs the coils go cold,hence poor starting.if engine labours after cold start try using (really)one gallon of petrol in tank to clean injectors.
british army put petrol (30%)in diesel tanks of challenger tanks in arctic
to stop fuel freezing.....most parts replacement jockeys in garages will say if you put diesel in tank it will have to flushed out.lot of bollocks.
trust me.have put petrol in by mistake loads of times,only get hot start
problems if you put in too much.
you dont say what miles the car has done.but you should now be using semi synthetic 20/50 oil and try using a fuel additive(redex/wynns)to clean the injectors.if you are using oil it is possible that the engine has lost some of its compression due to ring/valve wear.did you know that to convert your engine to a 130/150bhp unit,you only need to change the ecu try"diesel tuning"website.....
