SOURCE: 2003 VW Golf - O2 Sensor?

Honestly it is not very expensive to replace, but it is not extremely important. What it does is measure the oxygen/fuel level coming out of the engine. This tells the computer that the engine is either using the right air/fuel mixture or allows the computer to change the mixture slightly to allow the car to run properly. You could pull the sensor out and clean the terminal as it usually has alot of carbon build up due to its location, but this is normally a temporary fix. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Yes you have a problem with wiring for the O2 sensor shorting out somewhere in the line. It could be anywhere from the sensor to the ECU. Make sure there are no breaks, burns, or crushed parts of the wiring.

SOURCE: vw golf 2001. coolant system not working

Your most probable cause for this is because your water valve needs replacement or repairing. Not all cars have a water valve that brings the heated coolant into the heater core unit.

Essentially, the heated coolant is brought from the engine block directly, into a mini radiator that has a fan to blow heated air into your vehicles cabin.

If that valve were clogged, or the switch itself to open up the water valve that blocks the coolant from going into the heater core unit, then you wont be able to get heat from the vents.

ALSO, another reason why your car might also be overheating as well, is you need to check your coolant levels as well to make sure it is fully filled up, if it is, then your thermostat might also need replacement.

good luck with your problem.

SOURCE: how to replace front lambda sensor

The oxygen sensor, (also called the lambda sensor), is right after the exhaust manifold, which is on the back side of the engine, so you need to reach it from underneath.
However, it is expensive, so you may want to take it out carefully and simply have it checked first.
With an ohmmeter you can tell if it is burned out.
0 or infinite ohms is bad.
I believe it should be around 1500 ohms, but don't remember exactly.
The other thing is deposits like carbon can make it ineffective, and can be cleaned sometimes.

If you put a new one in, a little antizsieze is a good idea, but don't put on much, because you don't want to contaminate the sensor. Just enough to make removal easier. Remove and clean it every year.

Golf diesel 2003 keeps stopping randomly no diagnostic faults logged


When you say shopping you mean Stalling right. If yes then the usual cause is a failing Relay 109 which is the main power relay . The early golf had a grey relay which failed due to dry solder joints etc the modified black relay was issued to elevate the issue.

Relay 109 supplies power to these ,
Glow plug relay
- Fuse 32
ECM
Fuel quantity adjuster
- Fuse 34
Cold start injector
Waste gate bypass regulator valve (N75)
Change over valve (N239)
EGR vacuum regulator valve (N18)
Mass air flow sensor (G70)
- Fuse 43
Clutch vacuum vent valve (if equipped)
Brake vacuum vent valve
Relays for preheating coolant (if equipped)
Crankcase ventilation heating element

The ECM supplies power (and sometime ground as well) for:
Fuel cutoff valve
Cruise control switch
Manifold (intake) air pressure/Intake air temperature sensor
Needle lift sensor
Engine speed sensor
Engine coolant sensor
Closed throttle position switch (part of "go" pedal)
Kickdown switch (part of "go" pedal)
Throttle position switch (part of "go" pedal)
Fuel temperature sensor
Modulating piston displacement sensor

The ECM also communicates to the instrument cluster electronics and transmission control module (on automatics).

As a result of this, you can see why if the relay starts to cause power to flicker, or voltage drops, for all of these components, the results can be "unpredicatable" and none of them desireable.

Hi,it sound like a airmass sensor problem,to diagnose it you can disconnect it and see if there is change in engine idling,its located on the pipe going to the air filter.if not sensor it can be the throttle valve that is faulty then its best to get it scan on a vag machine.hope this helps best regards CONRAAD

My car engine temperature goes beyond 90 and m getting a check coolant warning.when that situation occur,the aircondition stop functioning.


First thing to replace is the coolant sensor to the ECU, this is located on the top radiator hose near to the engine, it has 4 wires going to it.

Should cost about £12 ($16)
