Question about Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

Ok so i jus bought a 96 vw golf 4 cyl. but the check engine lights on..now i know when a diagnostic test is run sometimes its hard to find out specifically what is wrong because it could be something undetectable..to make a long story short...i was told it was a speed sensor and a cam sensor..(which cannot be sold seperately cause its in the distributor...so back to the begining would it be easier to go get a tune up cause that was also a suggestion

You should get a diagnostic check and see what the code is and then we can fix the exact problem.

Need help 95 golf!!!


I'd replace the crank speed sensor .. you can get them on fleebay for 20$.. kind of a PITA to see but it's right under the oil filter. I have a 96 golf gl and have fixed just about every GD thing on the car, but i love it so i will keep fixing it.. This took care of the problem for me

If its the electronic unit,check the main fuses near the battery,also check the wiring connectors at the powersteering pump for loose or corroded plugs.If alls ok,you will need a diagnostic machine to read out what trouble codes are in the units memory.good luck.

Runs rough and smells of fuel after washing engine!


Don't "wash" the motor, like you wash the outside. Did you pressure wash it? God people are too freakin anal retentive and go screwing up their engines. Next time use engine cleaner and try not wet any wiring harnesses or anything electrical. You probably killed a sensor connection or something.
