I own a 1995 volkswagon golf gti and have noticed a smell of rotten eggs when i turn the heater on! what is causing it??


Sounds like the catalytic converter is leaking and not sending the fumes out through the exhaust although will get a meyhane smell from time to time especialy when your engine braking towards a stop light or give way.

1997 VW Golf GTI 2 Litre. The ABS light comes on


Hello, My 2000 2.0 Golf just recently had the same problem. I would feel the ABS pump working at certain times through the accelerator pedal. I found the right rear sensor failed the Bentley manual continuity test . After removing it I found it was pretty rusted. The sensor head is located inside the rear brake disc hub area and this probably explained this rust. The rust probably worked its way into the sensor body where you can't clean it and thus the resistance value went above specification. I ordered mine through Autohaus and cost me just over $50.00 for both rear sensors. Even though my drivers side was good I replaced it at the same time. The ABS light hasn't been on for 4 days now..

1998 VW Golf with a manual transmission. It is popping out of reverse and also, while shifting through the gears it is really hesitant to get going in each gear. Seems to be most noticable in first gear...


I had the same problem when I bought my GTI a few years back. It turned out that the reverse gear was shot which resulted in a new transmission. It kinda sounds like you may be in the same boat.

Golf gti mk3 2 litre 8 valve


by oil is "watery" I assume you mean to say thin and clean. which is normal however if there is actual water in it meaning is white and milkish looking that could be a big problem the head gasket could be blown or a cooling/oil valley broken. although sounds more like you're just being finicky 104deg. doesn't seem very hot for engine oil to me in fact it should prob. be around 180deg. depending on the oil cooler

Problems with gear box


Hi

If the clutch feels ok and isn't biting right at the bottom or right at the top then it sounds like its time for a recon or 2nd hand gearbox to be fitted.

I recently fitted a 2nd gearbox to a seat ibiza GTi which actually has the 2.0 Golf engine fitted to it and it wasn't too bad at all, but it is adviseable to fit a clutch kit whilst the box is off.

Very best regards
