Question about 1995 Volkswagen Golf
Hi I hope someone can help with this.
The problem seems to occur only when the car is warm and the engine seems to die when accelerating. When running normally the engine sounds and feels fine and I haven't noticed a loss of power. The battery seems lively, although I don't know the age of the plugs, coil, distributor etc. Once the engine has stopped it often wont start again for a while. Bumpstarting doesn't seem to work.
Also, I recently fitted a new exhaust manifold which involved stripping and replacing the inlet manifold and head. All were replaced with new gaskets and correct torque settings - however, the car didn't have a gasket fitted between the throttle body and the inlet manifold and as such I replaced it without one. Do you think that this problem could be due to this?
