Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf
The coil light keeps flashing and when it is on the car loses its power. It does not stay on all of the time but comes on whilst driving and also when start up the car.
Do you know what the problem could be?
From the brief description of your problem I'm guessing your vehicle is a Diesel? as the light you refer to sounds like the Glow Plug warning. When you turn on the ignition from cold the light comes on for around 5 to 10 seconds and then you start engine Yes?
If the light is coming on after vehicle is warmed up the glow plugs will upset the combustion and ruin your performance, so I would be looking at glow plug timer fault.
Hope this FixYa's problem!
