Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf

Open Question

Car misfires or stumbles sometimes while on hwy.

I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight,3.8 V6. The car has low mileage. Engine runs very smooth. Starts up immediately. The problem I have is on some rare occasions, while on the Highway, the "check engine" light comes on and the car starts to stumble, lose powerhesitate. When I play with the gas pedal, the car jerks, stumbles. And it gradually slows down, loss of power.When I come to a stop, the car idles smoothly, then seems to get some power back. The check engine light stays on until car turned off. When re-started, car runs A-1, check engine light goes out. Then I get no problems for a few weeks. Except, if I start cold and leave immediately, the car hesitates a little, then corrects itself.
Bad injectors? Bad throttle sensor? Coil?

Vacuume Leaks can cause this problems. you have to do a through check of vacuum hoses and the EGR valve. Your best bet can be to have your vehicle scanned at an autozone store and get a code. The EGR has to be closed at idle, then as the engine warms up or is accelerated, the EGR opens. That is if your car does not have an electronic EGR . The electronic EGRs do not use vacuum to operate. They are controlled by the PCM (power train control Module).

Could be a short in the wiring for the O2 sensor.   I currently have the same issue only my car finally threw a code after two days of it acting up.  Code 106.  Changed the MAP sensor and it now throws 108, MAP sensor high voltage circuit.  Ah the joys of cold weather and broke down vehicles.  But I know that you wont always get a code with a short.  Let me know if you fixed the problem.

Check the distributor shaft. They have a history of developing finite cracks that causes the condition your describing. Let me know if I can help you with any other info.

Intermidient ''bogging''


It could be your computer. Find the computer (sometimes behind the glove box) it should be a silver box with lots of wires. do a tap test on it (gently tap it with a screwdriver handle while the engine is running if the misfire comes and goes while tapping it needs to be replaced)
