1997 VW Golf A/C Problem

Hi, I have a 97 VW Golf with 55000 miles on it. If I turn the A/C on the compressor goes on and off every 5 seconds. In a hot summer day it will not cool down at all. Do I need to chang the compressor? (I recharge the gas last year)

The alternator cable connects to the upper post on the starter solenoid; the same post as the positive battery terminal.

1997 VW Golf...airbag light on...fault codes read by dealer reported faulty clock spring. New clock spring installed. Light now goes out for 5 seconds but then comes back on. Don't have a scanner to read...


Did you have the code cleared after you installed the new part because the ECM cannot clear itself, even though you installed a new part and the code is still in the system? You need to have the code erased with a OBD II scanner.

'96 VW Golf GL with 2.0 motor. Cold start knock


It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)

My 1997 VW Golf GL has rattle as I accelerate in first and second


I am going through the exact same problem with my 1997 golf 2.0 I-4.   I am making the assumption that this noise is loudest at about 1200-1500 rpm, or atleast most noticeable.   It could be attributed to a faulty catalytic converter which is a necesarry fix (in order to smog), and being that your O2 sensor is hooked into that whole system, you could be potentially giving away a few mpg.  This a relatively easy issue to deal with, and noise should go away when the converter is replaced.

AC does not work


If it is low on gas the compressor will not engage. You can take one of the fill caps off and stick a pen in a press on the valve is gas escapes with pressure the system has gas. If not the system has to recharged and checked for leaks. You can check to see if the compressor is siezed by trying to turn the outer portion of the pulley by hand, if it turns the compressor is probably OK. (DON'T TRY THIS WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING)

A you first or second owner?
depends how you drive, economical or sports, provided doing regular service, it is difficult to say these engines can go for 100 miles and can withstand even more so
