HEY THERE. MY 1986 GOLF 2 GTI DRIVES FINE FOR A FEW DAYS AND SUDDENLY STARTS MISFIRING AND THEN CUTS OUT.AFTER THAT IT WILL START WITH DIFFICULTY AND NOT REV UP...PLEASE HELP ME AS I HAVE REPLACED THE FUEL...


Did you check timing 6*btdc? Could be bad fuel distributor. Misfire is either a problem with fuel delivery or ignition (spark). If you can't find or fix the problem you'll ruin your catalytic converter.

I have a r reg golf gti 2.0 8v why would my temp gauge be flashing?


Low coolant, check the bottom of the water pump and the plastic coolant flanges on the cylinder head. They're all prone to leak

Golf gti 2.0L 8v


my first solution would be to check all the timing is set up properly and you will probably find that the distributor is not timed up right

Golf gti 2.0 8v keeps cutting out now it wont start


Just found your problem while looking for solutions to my own. My 2.0 8v 3door 97 golf gti can also cut out after driving for two or three minutes. Works fine one day then dies instantly 5 times the next...not a safe thing to happen pulling out of a junction!! Have researched problem and been told that it's probably fixable for £12-15. The "Hall Sender Relay" which is the fancy name for the ecu's power supply relay can go on the blink and cut power at any time causing instant shutdown...just like turning off the ignition key. Part number is 165906381 and available from a local vw dealer usually overnight. I'm fitting mine tomorrow 4/4/09...fingers crossed! Hope this helps others...worth a try for the cost involved.

Golf 2 gti k-jetronic problem


First check the filters... There is a high pressure filter near the fuel distributor and a strainer in the tank... Connect a fuel pressure gauge at the fuel distributor... there are 2 test ports for this. One is "system" pressure the other is "control" pressure... you want the "system" port...if no (or very low) pressure then I would suspect the fuel distributor itself... If pressure is good and still no spray from the injectors then either the fuel is very dirty and has clogged the injectors (not very likely except in extreme cases of neglect) or the injectors aren't getting a signal (or an intermittent signal, more likely) from the injection control unit. If none of this helps you will need to get the Bentley manual and follow the troubleshooting steps...;-)
