My 95 Landcruiser with 1FZ-FE engine runs but misses very badly, will not idle.


Sounds like a vacuum leak.

Search for it VERY CAREFULLY by spraying a shot of carb cleaner here and there. When it revs up or smooths out, you'll have located the leak.

Keep a fire extinguisher handy when doing this, and don't spray into electrical parts like the alternator or distributor!

How do i repair or service the k jet tronic system in my golf 2 gti 1989 16v


The steering wheel shaking will probably be your drivers side wheel bearing, as your car becomes slugish when hot there is probably some fault with one of the sensors in the cooling or injector system.


Try checking the following things : leaks in vacuum hoses, air flow sensor in airbox, or Map sensor, thermostat switch, cold start injector and timing switch, coil packs/ ht leads/ spark plugs/ distributor and rotor arm/ coolant temp sensor if you have a spare ecu try swapping that in. Those are most the usual culprits for your problem if your car is a petrol.


Your best bet is to take it to a garage though as fault finding like this is time consuming and very difficult without diagnostic equipment.

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.

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).

Serious electrical problems wiv vw golf mk4 gti turbo yr 2000


I had a VW rabbit that developed mad electrical problems. It started when one day the headlights remained on and would not shut off. It turned out that a $2.00 gasket for the antenna wire had failed. This allowed road water from the wheel well to leak onto the fuse box. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak.
Check all fuses and electrical wiring for signs of shorts or corrosion.

Mk3 golf gti cuts out


Check for vacuum leaks.either use a propane blowtorch (switched on very low BUT WITH NO FLAME!)When the gas enters the leak the revs will increase... OR if you're not confident with this, use a spray water-bottle with water and some washing-up liqud. the bubbles will disappear where the leak is. The leak will be between the air meter and the head.
