This is only the case with the smaller engined diesel engines however most of the golfs in petol should not be sluggish, check the engine oil as this may have gone off, and also check you air filter.

Try replacing your MAF or changing the air filter.

SOURCE: Driver side headlight bulbs burned out on 2003 VW Golf

There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in.  (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.)  Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.

SOURCE: 2003 VW Golf - O2 Sensor?

Honestly it is not very expensive to replace, but it is not extremely important. What it does is measure the oxygen/fuel level coming out of the engine. This tells the computer that the engine is either using the right air/fuel mixture or allows the computer to change the mixture slightly to allow the car to run properly. You could pull the sensor out and clean the terminal as it usually has alot of carbon build up due to its location, but this is normally a temporary fix. I hope this helps you with your problem.

My golf 1 1989 1800 is sluggish uphill


The first thing to do is monitor the fuel pressure and then run a fault code test on the electronic engine control system, both take special tools and you will need the dealer or a VW equipped shop.

My 2003 vw golf comfortline 1.4 petrol sounds like a diesel when started and driven oil level checked and ok


Sounds like an hydralic tappet is failing, try not to do many miles, get someone with experience to have a listen as soon as you can the last thing you need is for it to do real damage and leave you stranded.

Fingers crossed it will be a small issue.

VW's are VERY strong engines :o)

2003 VW golf o2 sensor?


Yes, it could be something else, other than the converter, such as a faulty o2 sensor. Take your VW to Autozone or Advance auto, and ask them to a do a scan, to see what they come up with ( think it's free).

2003 VW Golf won't start - battery was charged


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.
