VW Golf Mk4 Engine Revs Problem

Hi, last week I changed my front drivers side wishbone on my golf mk4, but since then, whenever I speed up quickly, the engine seems to revv up but no increase in traction. Its as if I had suddenly put the gear into neutral or the car is slipping on ice.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Simon

It seems to me that somehow the driveshaft is slipping; I assume that in order to replace the wishbone you had to loosen the big nut that ties the driveshaft to the disk assembly, if this was the case, make sure that the "big" nut is really tight so that it does not slip. If the driveshaft slips, the planetary gears in the differential would transfer all of the engine power to that side of the car and no power to the other side, similar to having one wheel stuck in mud, or in the air. hope this helps

If the check engine light is on look at the faults. It could be a defective cam sensor, the timing belt might not be in the place, or a defective mass air flow sensor.

SOURCE: Golf MK4 Handbrake blocking

Seems like your rear brakes are staying stuck in locked position when you release the E-brake. Try to adjust the e-brake from under the car first. If that does not work then remove the rear drum, and there is a adjustment bolts. Turn it a few turns put back on the drum and try again.

SOURCE: How do I fit coil over rear springs on VW Golf mk4

first you can loosen the top strut nuts, they are accesses from the boot and the bolt tops may have an allen key top you can use to stop the piston spinning, then you will need to jack up back of car, one side at a time, unbolt bottom of existing shocks, place new ones inplace but bolt tops in first, if they dont fit as too long to get into the bottom bolt holes, try jacking the car as high as possible and get a friend to slowly but firmly push down on the rear wheel, (btw you do this with the wheels on, just as easy as off) and with that extra clearance you should get em in.. or there are spring compressors but I doubt they will be needed, or even possible on "in car mounted" springs.. goodluck, there are also several articles on vwwatercooled.org.au, checkit!! :) Chas

Golf mk4 sdi brake light problem??


What colour is this light.
The Golf mk4 sdi certainly should have brake pad wear sensors front and rear and the light on dash for this is orange with a similar symbol to what you describe.
The ABS light is orange with ABS printed on it
