Question about 1992 Volkswagen GTI
1988 2.0l 16v. breaking up at 5 1/2rpm, loss of power. Not sure whats the normal operating temp, so is an average of 94 degrees OK or to high? red LED behind the temp gauge is flashing but very dim. Plz help i love the car and want to get it running properly.
Regarding the steering, check the tightness of the power steering belt and the steering fluid. Some places can flush the fluid if necessary. Check for leaks at the power steering lines and the inner tie-rod boots if the fluid is low. If the fluid is ok, no leaks and the belt is tight the pump may be going or the steering rack could be binding which means replacement of either if that's the case. If the pump groans loudly when turning that will indicate a problem. If the belt is squealing it may be too loose, worn or the pump pulley may be binding.
