Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

I have a 2000 VW Golf 2.0L petrol. Occasionally when you start the car it turns itself off. Once it is started again it shakes as if fuel is not getting through, have to accellerate to prevent car from dying. Just had transmission replaced. Could this be a computer problem?

This is a common occurance on vw's, you need to check for vacuum hose leaks, this is the cause.
Volkswagen engines rely heavily on vacuum and if there is one cut hose, or one small leak, your car will run like this.
If you can keep it running with the hood up, start listening for vacuum leaks around your hoses on both sides.
Most vacuum leaks occur near the front of the engine bay.

OVER FUELLING ON VW POLO 1.6i. CAR STARTS ONCE HOT DOES NOT START


Backfire means timing is off and unburnt fuel mixture explodes either from compression or a hot exhaust system. Black smoke could mean the fuel mixture is too rich. A metering component is not functioning and sending wrong data correcting the air/fuel ratio.

Vw golf 1996 cabrio 2.L ran out of petrol, i put 10 litres in and now it wont start


there most likely isn't enough fuel for the pump to pick up. Once a fuel tank runs dry it takes more fuel than usual to get the pump to send the fuel to the engine. Try a little more fuel, and if that doesn't work, let me know :D

Check your alternator and the voltage regulator first. A gas station could do this simple test. Usually it would be a bad regulator which cheaper the petrol (gasoline in the USA).

Well, there are some hundreds reasons why the engine can stop. Common ones are:
Dirty fuel filters, problems with electronic distribution, spark plugs to be changed, broken fuel pump, battery contact not in place, blown head gasket, rarely also a problem with anti-theft alarm motor lock can cause same thing.
Generally, if the car motor stopped immediately, with no additional symptoms is likely a problem with distribution ( no spark).
If you have experience in servicing your car you should start from checking if there is spark, and if petrol is being pumped regularly.
Best thing to do is always having it checked by a mechanic.
