Question about 1985 Volkswagen GTI
Air in a gas line means your PCV valve has failed.
There is an air bleed-off valve in your fuel line that goes through the PCV valve and crankcase.
Another option is your fuel pump relay has failed or is sticking - causing the fuel pump to stay on and be over-burdened.... sending max fuel to cylinders under load (accelleration).
Did you properly bleed the air and prime the pump each time you changed it?

These 2 problems are interrelated :). But there might be millions of reasons for the same :(.
It's not possible for you to diagnose each and every aspect, However, we can still diagnose the major reasons causing these issues, and particularly in 85 golf gti 8v.
Regarding noise, it refers to unhealthy Pump.
Check and make sure there wouldn't be any air in the fuel. If you have that, you might have noticed as your fuel would remain ( Let's say 1/4 ), the noise would increase.
If we talk about acceleration, there are many factors - The best would be to change the fuel filter. If there would be clogging in fuel filter, it would never allow you to accelerate the car after certain point.
Replace if you find fault.
Any further query, let me know.
