If it was not a successful repair, take it back and get it put right or better still, take the car to an authorised dealer for a proper repair. Valves rarely leak, ignition coils stop working.

If you replaced the coils the spark plugs should also be change. The plugs are more than likely bad.

SOURCE: intake valve gasket leaking how do i replace

He must have meant the intake manifold gasket. That is a complex job, but can be done if you have basic knowledge of mechanics and a few hand tools. Best advice is to get a haynes repair manual from an auto parts store as it will have step by step instructions and photos. Good luck. Dont forget to rate.

SOURCE: Valve job for 2000 VW Jetta GL w/105,000 miles

is he sure it isn't the rings are worn also?  If so don't waste money on a valve job, when you really need a rebuilt motor.  Had you changed the oil more you wouldn't need this repair at this time.  Good uck as his price is decent.  Ask him the price for a long block?

What if I had a mobile mechanic replace my fuel pump, fuel filter and gave it a tune up but, the check engine light came on and when vehicle is running it runs rough or surges do you the the timing is off?

Take the intake manifold off and replace the 6 ignition coils. While you're right there, replace the top & bottom intake manifold gaskets too - 12 in total. Very easy job, only takes 2 hours all-up, but your mechanic will charge you a fortune. Learn to do it yourself - I'm no mechanic, but quite practical. Took me 2 hours and the car runs like new now. Was running like yours.

Why does the engine shut off when driving

I had this problem last year , took to a mechanic who gave me an $800 tune up, and I still had the problem then I went to my local mechanic, it turned out to be the ignition went bad . I believe this needs to be replaced by a licensed mechanic as it is an electronic switch that needs to be programed to work with your car

Check Engine Light

Obviously, the "mechanics" did not fix the problem. Give them an opportunity to do the job right.

1989 VW Golf wont's start. Coil loses power, no spark

You are describing a bad ignition switch. These fail in such a way that the voltage to the ignition fails while in the crank position.

Hi, I have a 96 dodge neon. Im going to start from the very beginning. For about a week my car was having a hard time getting acceleration, then it slowly started to "putter" and shut off, only...

Normally, I too would check the fuel pump, but did they check fuel pressure at the injectors or schreader valve? Could be a possibility...If the coils and fuel pressure checked out, (I am assuming they actually checked to see you had spark at the plugs) I would suspect a bad cam sensor or crankshaft position sensor. Those would cause the engine to die and intermittently start (at their desire) usually would start after sitting some time. Both of those sense the position of the number one piston at its firing position and tell the distributor and injectors to go at that time. Essential for startup and keeping the motor in time as it runs. (Will also cause poor performance) I would try the crankshaft sensor first, that one would explain the 'start once in a while' after working on it. Make sure you have good fuel pressure at injectors and good strong spark before buying any other parts......Mike
