Question about 1986 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

1986 VW Golf 8 valve - Why does my car shake @ 1200 RPM ?

The car's engine seems is very smooth below about 1200 RPM and above 1800 rpm. What would cause the vibration around that RPM? The problem stays the same if the car is in park or if you're actually driving it. This is my first VW so, I'm not sure if they just shake a alot.

It could be that your clutch/pressure plate/flywheel is maybe out of balance. i think thats about the only thing, if your engine seems fine.

Where is the oil pressure sensor of vw golf 1999


The sensors are usually found on the oil filter flange housing with the oil cooler. Also there are two dynamic sensors to measure pressure below 2000 rpm and above 2000 rpm so it could warn you of pressure loss within those two ranges.

Hi mt mk3 golf gti 2.0 liter 8 valve seems to be hitting a limiter of some sort at 5000rpm it should rev to over 6000rpm why is this,? thanks


what aload of rubbish its not going over 5000rpm because the dizzie timings out and you need to get your crank or tdc timing then check all timing marks line up through top of gear box once its all lined up then you can set your distributor timing this is definately the problem so i hope you sort it ive red lined my golf for 2 years on nearly every journey at some point and the engine runs sweet as a nut but it does drink alot of fuel lol

Oil pressure drops to zero after warmed up or below 2700 RPM


Check the oil pressure with a test guage, if the finding are the same, the look at your oil filter, pump, pickup, or pressure relief valve.....

VW Golf MK3 1996 P - Car cuts out when slowing down. Battery and Oil lights come on. Restart the car then starts juggering. Its not a fluid purring from the engine.


i would start by cleaning out the throttle body. they collect soot and not have to be a lot either for it to mess up the idle speed, i had trhis on mine soon as i dipped the clutch to slow down the rpm dropped to about 400 to stall, i cleaned throttle body out ( taking air intake off and wipe round inside and the butterfly will be enough) and now it idles and the rpm dont drop below 900
