Question about 1999 Volkswagen Golf
Break, or breaks in the wiring of the wiring harness, from the crank sensor to the coil pack. The cam sensor works in conjunction with the crank sensor also. Thought I should bring that up too.
There can be breaks in the wiring of the wiring harness. This is no fun to remove and check, I know! I had to do it with a 1992 Pontaic Bonneville, with a 3.8 Liter V6 engine. (Remove everything to get down to the water pump, and then remove the water pump. The harness is behind the water pump!) You have to remove the harness, attach a multimeter, (Set to OHM's so you can check continuity), to the harness on each individual wire. (Red, or Positive probe to one end of the wire, Black, or Negative probe to the other end of the wire)
Wiggle the wire to see if continuity breaks. (I just stripped the insulation all the way off of each wire, to check it. I replaced each and every wire anyway!)
With the GM 3.8 Liter V6 engine, this was a 90% sure occurrence. Nothing like driving 25 miles from home in the middle of nowhere, to have the car just shut off!

Trouble Code: P0134
HO2S-11 (Bank 1 Sensor 1) No Activity Detected
Trouble Code Conditions: Engine started, engine running in closed loop at a speed over 3 mph for more than 2 minutes, and the PCM detected the HO2S signal stroke rationality was more than the threshold value (0.250 volt) during the Heated Oxygen Sensor Monitor test.
HO2S signal circuit is open or shorted to ground.HO2S has deteriorated, is contaminated or has failed.PCM has failed.YOUR HO2S SENSOR IS BAD,IT COST 80.00,USE EXACT FIT PART.EASY TO REMOVE,DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR,GET WRENCH AND REMOVE.5 MINUTES TO DO.Trouble Code: P0336
Crankshaft Position Sensor Performance
Trouble Code Conditions: Engine running and the PCM detected the number of CKP sensor signals counted (between the reference mark gap). did not equal the Actual number of available teeth (i.e., the CKP signals. were out or the normal window" of operation with the CMP sensor. signals okay).
CKP sensor signal circuit connections loose (intermittent fault).CKP sensor wiring harness has a connection fault (intermittent).CKP to Target Wheel "air gap" is incorrect.CKP sensor is damaged or has failed.Must remove to see.Trouble Code: P0440
EVAP System Malfunction
Trouble Code Conditions: Engine started, ECT sensor signal less than158?F at startup, IAT sensor signal more than 9.5?F, system voltage over 10.0 volts engine runtime 15-20 minutes at cruise speed, then returned to idle speed, VSS indicating 0 mph, load value 2.2 ms, canister load factor less than 4.0, fuel tank pressure less than 0.5" Hg, then after the Idle Control system and Fuel Trim had stabilized, the PCM detected a fuel vapor leak (as small as 0.040") in the EVAP system during the EVAP Leak Test.
Fuel filler cap damaged, cross-threaded or loosely installed.Small hoses or cuts present in the EVAP vapor hoses/lines.EVAP purge valve is damaged or has failed.Here you are the symptons.
