The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

We have diagnosed my golf4 its saying gear monitoring what could be the problem


slipping or not actuating the final clutch pack (usually the highest gear clutch pack is at the rear of the trans) look for a torn o-ring on the piston which actuates it. just replacing clutches is not the whole job.

Hi there 1Z, I think you should go check it out and see if there is problem but timing belt has to be checked every 20,000 km

You need to have the transmission serviced as this will most likely be the problem. At least have the code read from the computer and see what it is so you have an idea of what is wrong.

More than likely the fuel pump. This may sound stupid but take something and give your gas tank a bit of a thump. What year is the car?

Glow light flashes


Correct - the glow light flashing is an indication that there is fault. Often this is associated with a blown brake bulb or faulty brake switch.
