2001 VW Golf SE - Engine Dead??

Hi all,

I have a 2001 (51 plate) VW Golf 1.6SE which was driving fine, allbeit had the 'service now' message for about 300 miles...

Anyway, the engine cut out completely and rolled to a stop with all the lights on the dash... When you try to start the engine, all the lights come on the dash, it bleeps with the service message and thats it...the engine doesnt fire, turn over..no clicking from the alternator..no nothing! just dead...The battery is good and all levels are fine....

Please help, any ideas?

Cheers in advance,
Rob.

My vw Golf 4 1998 model, engine 1.8 speed sensor is dead. now temporarily i would like to know if i have to drive 120km/h, what rpm do i have to drive at using the rpm meter?


roughly if you are doing 3000rpm you will be doing approx. 100 klms/hr or 60 mph at 120km/hr you would be around 3200rpms.; Remember this will be in o/drive or 5th

My emission warning light is on and i smell a faint burning smell occasionally on my vw polo 1.4 it,s a 51 plate


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Is your check engine light on? It is to due with your exhaust. Check to see if oil or any other fluid is leaking on your exhaust. There might be a leak around your O2 sensors.

I have a golf mk1 2001 model when I drive sometimes it just goes dead then I struggle to start it up again and when I get it to start it runs fine could it be something to do with my feul system because it...


if and when this problem reoccurs,you need to check if its spark or fuel problem.to check for spark carefully pull off the main lead to the distributor cap[center lead],hold it near the engine with a insulated pliers,have someone crank the engine and see if theres spark.if no spark try another tci unit[common failure] which should be located under the dash near the glove compartment,if its fuel check fuel pump or return valve could be stuck open..cheers

Hi Nizzy . Sorry to tell you but it sounds like your water pump impeller has fallen/broken off . Depending on your engine code it would be better off changing the cambelt and tensioner at the same time . Regards VW Audi tech

1986 VW Golf 8 valve - Why does my car shake @ 1200 RPM ?


it could be that your clutch/pressure plate/flywheel is maybe out of balance. i think thats about the only thing, if your engine seems fine.

VW Golf 51 Plate Oil Pressure Indicator Light


Hi.
The "oil light" measures the oil pressure in the engine, not the oil level in the sump. I would not drive it an inch until I had it checked by a competent mechanic. New engines are expensive!

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
