There is a small vacuum pipe from the EGR solenoid that was disconnected, by reconnecting this pipe the problems (that I have had ever since I had a new head some 30,000 miles ago from a VW main dealer) have gone away.

Golf 4 1.6 sr estate, lack of power, number 4 cilinder spark plug always wet, as soon as you load the family and try going up a hill it takes you a while


You need to replace the no.# 4 ignition coil!
Don't drive the car with this no.# 4 cylinder misfire, because the catalytic converter will be damaged by unburned petrol!
Just replace the no.# 4 ignition coil! That's all the job.

Where is the oil pressure sensor of vw golf 1999


The sensors are usually found on the oil filter flange housing with the oil cooler. Also there are two dynamic sensors to measure pressure below 2000 rpm and above 2000 rpm so it could warn you of pressure loss within those two ranges.

Have a strange humming noise that can be heard


Hi:
Often "humming" noises like what you are experiencing are caused by a failing bearing somewhere. Some usual suspects are wheel bearings, alternator bearings, and sometimes even your waterpump, but usually it starts leaking too. To start narrowing down what it is, have someone ride with you to see if the noise is coming from left side or right side, or engine area, then see if it happens when the car is not moving, or just when the drive wheels are pulling the car? This way , hopefully you can pin point the culprit!
