Your problem is the flow back valves in the fuel lines.

Simple fix, as they just clamp place at both ends. Do both the feed line as well as the return line.

Not a bad idea to change the O ring in the fuel filter at this time as well, Air in the line will make starting troublesome.

Good luck.

VW 2013 Golf Automatic stays in 1st gear when driving uphill. Have to pull over after hill, stop, park and then go for engine to autocorrect. VW service center mechanic says this is how it's supposed to be...


There is no problem with the revs going to 3 or 6. The revs need to climb so you have enough power to climb the hill (if the car upshifts under heavy load it may stall). But are you saying that the only way you can get it to shift out of first is to turn off the car? if so, then that is obviously not supposed to happen. It should shift shortly after you start driving down hill.

2001 vw golf gt tdi is struggling to start when cold and sometimes hot..when started it struggles 2 stay ticking over at 900 revs...what can i do??please help


golfs coldstart system works when you open door/shut door/put key in hole and turn on (in that order)if you delay puting belt on for longer than say 30 secs the coils go cold,hence poor starting.if engine labours after cold start try using (really)one gallon of petrol in tank to clean injectors.
british army put petrol (30%)in diesel tanks of challenger tanks in arctic
to stop fuel freezing.....most parts replacement jockeys in garages will say if you put diesel in tank it will have to flushed out.lot of bollocks.
trust me.have put petrol in by mistake loads of times,only get hot start
problems if you put in too much.

My Diesel Golf lacks power and acceleration on hills, can you advise what the problem is?


The problem could probabely be the diesel filter, try replacing it.
If there's no difference thn best would be to service the injector pump and the nozzles.
