    I've had a few similar problems with this. I have a 1994 VW Golf GTI 2.0L 16V. It ended up being the ignition barrel. The key turned possibly 1MM over what it should, i had to position the key just right to get the car started. I just ended up put a switch for ignition and a push button to start the car to solve this. hope it helps :)

VW GOLF MK3 GTI 8v starting problems


My mk3 1996 16v 2ltr was playing up, wouldnt start when cold, wouldnt rev above 4500-5000. I changed the ignition switch, ecu relay, petrol pump relay, plugs,plug leads, coil, and finally, checked the hall sender on the dizzy, and found a broken wire in the dizzy body. Got a 2nd hand dizzy from a breakers for 40 quid, (150 or more new) and all is well. (I actually took the car to two garages and they couldnt find the problems, no faults registered on vagcom).

VW Golf MK3 wont start


fuel relay could be faulty. i think its number 30 or 167 in the fuse box under the driver side steering. it could also be the fuel pump or connector on the fuel pump under the black metal plate under your trunk carpet. you could try manually throwing in fuel into the intake to make sure its not your car's ecu or ignition system. if it starts and stays running it could be what took me a few months to discover after i had intermittent problems. there a small vacuum hose from the fifth injector on a 1997 mk3 gti (4 cylinder) that connects to the injector rail. i think its some kind of activation for the electronic injectors. my pipe was broken and i just cut it and my car hasnt been better since! i know this is an old question but i hope it helps someone out there!

by oil is "watery" I assume you mean to say thin and clean. which is normal however if there is actual water in it meaning is white and milkish looking that could be a big problem the head gasket could be blown or a cooling/oil valley broken. although sounds more like you're just being finicky 104deg. doesn't seem very hot for engine oil to me in fact it should prob. be around 180deg. depending on the oil cooler
