Or then, running slowly and carefully, turn-off the engine and restart again. Drive carefully.

Difficult to say how much but sounds like fuel issue, most likely o2 sensor fault or catalyst both relatively expensive but the catalst more so, o2 sensors fairly common on these and would guess approx £180 .whch i guess equates to around. $320 ?? supplied and fitted.

It sounds as if your vehicle may have severe water damage to the engine. The engine sensors on the golf are suseptable to water damage and can result in epc light that you are seeing on your dash, or so i was told by VW. I replaced all the sensors, alternator and the computer on my original engine, but this action didnt fix the problem. So i bit the bullet and replaced the engine, and haven't had a problem since. If you do the labor yourself it can be done as cheap as $4000. I hope this helps mate.

good luck

SOURCE: epc light on car losses power

When these lights are on it is indicating a fault has occurred in the powertrain, the 1st thing you need to do is have the powertrain control module read for the fault codes that were stored when the computer turned on the warning lights.

My epc light went on in my 2002 volkswagen jetta


Take it to the dealer, the EPC warning light - and even more the failsafe run which doesn't allow you drive faster than 20mph) is an indication of serious motor troubles. They can read the ECU faultcodes, which should be a good startingpoint for troubleshooting the cause ...

You could do some basic troubleshooting like checking the air filter, the oil level, the spark plugs, etc. You didn't fill it up with bad gas, did you ? And does the engine make strange noises/vibration when running idle ? In case you fixed some obvious cause, you can dis- and reconnect the battery to erase the engine's faultcode. If it's not fixed, the EPC (and failsafe run) will simply come on again.

My advice would be not to drive it untill it's fixed to prevent more potential damage.

Instrument cluster warning light


that's the check engine light. Take the vehicle to Autozone and ask them to read the computer error code. Then post that, unless they tell you what it means and you are able to correct the problem.
