Thats the risk you run when you have a third party not liscensed by volkswagen mess with your ECM. take it to the tuning shop that did the remap work and ask them to redo it because it messed your engine up, if you make a big enough stink they might do it for free.

Either you have a lubrication problem or a bad oil pressure sender. You need to have it scanned for DTC and do an oil pressure test before you seize your engine.

My stop light keeps coming up with the problem oil pressure,i have a golf gti turbo


Get the oil pressure tested with an outside gauge. If you run short of oil pressure, turbo and engine will suffer, as you know....

If you are actually short on pressure, you would need to investigate further, usually no good answers there....

But commonly a transducer fails and gives wrong readings, hope for this result

2001 vw golf 1.9 gt tdi miss fire


if you have a pd engine and you say that it miss fires i would change the wire loom to the injectors if it persists the air flow meter is on the blink, has you car ever gone into a limp mode status were you couldn't rev then check your turbo ,this may sound strange but just had a 150bhp tdi which was remapped with a very simular problem

I own a 2001 Golf GTi turbo that has trouble starting once the engin is hot. It starts fine when cold. The problem happens sporaticaly once out on errands. What could be the causes for the engine not...


the golf gti was plauged with a fault which vw will not own upto. it is a know fact that the induction manifold can sometimes fracture and allow unwanted air in when hot. if well serviced you will find this to be the problem. if not then i would strongly recomend that you service it.
