SOURCE: 1996 golf gti wont fire up

what about checking the ignition or the fuel pump relay? i wouldnt try touching the positive and negative leads together even after five minutes as the ciruit has capacitors and inductors in them and this could cause damage to the electronics.if there's no fuel and no spark it sounds like a common fault. try disconnecting your immobiliser behind the glove box (most of the mk3's starts with them disconnected)

SOURCE: eng. shakes spits/sputters oil in spark plugs

I just had this fixed on my suby today. The cause is that the spark plugs, go through the valve covers on the 2.5 l .When the o rings in the cover go, the result is oil in the spark plugs. The cost of the repair in Canada was about $500 including diagnostics as well as new plugs and wires About 1.5 hours labor and new seals and gaskets. It now runs like new. This is a common problem for this subaru engine as well as for the dodge neon.

Cant locate the spark plugs on vw golf 88 mk1..any ideas?

I'm assuming you have a petrol fuelled car, as diesels do not have spark plugs.

Find the distributor cap leading off the distributor - it should look a little like this:

there should be 5 leads trailing from the cap - the lead in the centre leads to the "coil", the other 4 leads go to the spark plugs. There should only be 4 as the Mk1 was only made as a 4 cylinder engine.

Pull off the leads (though not whilst the engine is running as you'll electrocute yourself) and the spark plugs will be revealed.

Hi My golf is a 1995 model 1800 cti. i have had a problem it will start and go but when i come out for lunch or even before that it does not want to start. And its not the battery?

might sound silly here but have oyu checked the spark plug gaps of late ,these cars use a three electrode spark plug and normally last forever and a day but check the gaps on all three electrodes and close gap to 25th and then see what happens
