I drive a 1997 golf 3 GTI 16V. The car can't start when the oil temperature goes beyond 88 degrees celsius from the onboard computer, I have to wait for it to cool down for a while before starting. What...


Did you resolve this?
I drive a mk3 golf GTI 8V and mine starts fine but after driving for about 3 minutes (engine warms up) it starts to misfire, the car stalls and then you can't start it again until the engine has cooled. Does this sound similar?

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

Starting


Look on the starter, there are 2 terminals (plastic and black) if i remember correctly, alot of times the top connector gets loose or disconnected. Make sure all connections on starter are clean and secure. Try that before anything else.

Mk3 golf gti 8v can not swich the genuin alarm imobilisor off with the fob tryed new batterys in both fobs dont now if it has lost its cooding or somthing? car has bean standing for about 6 weeks


Check that the key still has the chip inside. If not then this can be solved by having a 'virgin key' coded up to your car using the long number on the back of the clocks.
Also try disconnecting the battery for a few mins, reconnect, then use the normal method to start it.
If this fails then its a case of following the wires back from the immobiliser and disconnecting.
