I have a VW Golf V6 4 Motion and it seems that the power is missing whenever I put down my foot. It's a delayed response. The power dose kick in but not instantly as it use to. Any Ideas on this? Cheers Jac

Re: Lack of power in all gears
The very 1st thing to do is see if there are any trouble codes for this problem, Autozone and other chain parts stores do this test for free, if there are no codes clean the inside of the MAF sensor with MAF cleaner made by CRC Chemicals, also check the fuel pressure, have u replaced the fuel filter in the last 30,000 miles? if not do so, it is regular maintenance.

If your ABS runs thru clean upon initial starting of the car and only turns on when the car has been put into motion, You have a vibration occuring near the wheel speed sensors that is tripping the ABS system up. Is there any howling noise while driving down the road ( like the howl the tires on a truck would make , but more subdued), and it goes away when you are driving down the road and turn one way or the other?
You say there is no gears! does it go into gear, if so is there a horrible crunch??? can you put it into gear when the engine is turned off!
Sounds like to me that one of the linkage rods have broken/come off, these rods are situated just off the gearbox from the gear lever! there should be two rods i think! check these for damage/missing! replace if necessary!
Hope this helps
no i can assure you the vw golf is very well made and will take those wheels on the car without any problems at all, it will also add a little more traction as the tyres will be wider so the car will handle the road a little better, i presume that vw are trying to rip you off as you seem a little vunerable but i think that it would not be a problem at all, hope that helps
