Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf

2 Answers

Carburettor Flange , How to replace please ?

The flange joining the carburettor to the manifold is completely perished and i can move the carb around by hand easily yet luckly the car still runs well as the carb is held in place just by all the hoses etc. I removed the carb but I cannot see how to get the black plastic air duct intake from the top of the carb. Any ideas please ?
Also I cannot see how to remove the flange from the carburettor. I see the ends of 4 little studs but cannot see how i might get these out . Any ideas please ?
I have looked on the internet but cannot see my particular carburettor or flange type . I see other flanges for VW's but not any that look like mine. The car is a 1800 cc Golf ( UK L Reg ) which is a 1993 .

Hi ... megadeth_600 . YOU WERE RIGHT . THANK YOU. Unbelievably , those pop outs look clear on the photo but in real life they are hardly noticeable. The had never been removed before so they were in perfect condition and blended really well with the other plastic , so much so they just looked like mouldings rather than pop-outs. I had asked all over the place , mechanics , car spares shops , people with other VW's and not one person knew how to get the air intake off . Even the Haynes manual ( a total waste of time as far as the Golf CL is concerned ) which says on the front it covers the CL model doesnt tell you . Like it shows you a photo of mans hand getting hold of the air intake and under that photo the caption says " removing the air intake " . Hahahaha , well thats helpful. Anyway , now we can progress and get on with replacing the INJECTOR FLANGE GASKET , thank you so much Megadeth_600 . You are the Daddy , big cheese , main man , top dog.

If i remember to remove the plastic cover, u will notice 2 plastic caps on either side of the VW logo. Pop em out and should be 2 screws there. Be careful when popping em out as i'm not 100% certain, haven't touched one in ages.

    More than my pleasure, good luck with the car. If u really wanna nail some good mileage outta that car of yours, put a turbo diesel tranny in there. Get pretty much the same mileage as a TDI, but u will sacrifice a little power on the acceleration, but to be honest, the 1,8 litre gas engine ain't a 0-60 powerhouse anyways.
    I did this to my jetta and the mileage is insane, between 850- 950 kms on 55 litres of gas.

I have just had my carby professionally rebuild,how do I reinstall a ford econovan carby 1999 model


Ah 'carby', Australian for 'carburettor'.

Water doesn't come out of anywhere on a carb, so I reckon it will be one of the heater hoses, either perished or split. Best was to find it is use a lead lamp and a small mirror. Hopefully you wont have to remove the carb to replace it. Might even just be a loose hose clamp. ford econovan cooling system Bing images

Sounds like your carb needs to have the jets adjusted. 2 ways around the problem: 1. Spray starter fluid in the top of the carb before starting. or 2. Pump the gas pedal about 8 times before trying to start.

How to fix emission problems ?


Get some Carburettor cleaner spray from an auto center.
Take the pipe off into the air filter unit attached to the Carburettor it normally has a large ring clip around the black pipe so you may be able to use a slot screwdriver or a small ratched driver to remove.
Put a small piece of cloth into the carburettor unit to stop too much contamination going back into the system . Use a cloth or paper towel to wipe off any excess oil inside the carburettor. Spray the carburettor cleaner inside the unit , Using an old Tootchbrush give it a rub to degrease the old oil and fuel. Be careful to Open up the open and closing circular small valve spray a little bit of cleanir inside and using a long piece of cloth clean any contaminated area inside the carburettor.
Dont ruch this and get as much old oil and grease from inside the carburettor as you can. Taking care to remove all the bits of cloth and paper tissue . .
Start the car up with the Carburettor still open to the world.
With the car running and the Carburettor opening and closing spray a little more of the cleaner using the straw in the nozzle into the inside , please make sure you are standing to the side so nothing comes back out into your eyes.

With the carburettor now much cleaner . Put the air pipes back on and take it for a run . At your next fill up of fuel put in a fuel addative for Engine System cleaning and this should help with the emissions.

Tickover


please try using carburretor cleaner.
start the engine and spray fron the air intake a couple of times.
please check the carburettor snokle for wear off or check that the lever that accelerates the car could be tight and gets stuck.usually if excessive air is allowed in the carburettor the rpm will increase so it has to be the carburettor.

Check out the rubber/metal flange that joins the carburettor to its manifold. Wait while the engine is cold. Then check if the carburettor moves . Do this by taking hold of the carburettor and moving it a little side to side. The rubber mounts are known to perish after a time and this can cause air to be sucked in through the cracked flange rubber and in turn causing the engine to drop revs. The flanges are a replacement part and not too expensive so its a relativley easy fix if this is the problem.
GOOD LUCK
