Hi My golf is a 1995 model 1800 cti. i have had a problem it will start and go but when i come out for lunch or even before that it does not want to start. And its not the battery?

might sound silly here but have oyu checked the spark plug gaps of late ,these cars use a three electrode spark plug and normally last forever and a day but check the gaps on all three electrodes and close gap to 25th and then see what happens

Difficulty in cold starting golf MKII 1988

If it is the EFi model (electronic fuel injection) then change the coolant temp sensor

If it is the slightly earlier Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical injection it could be either the warm up valve or the 5th injector (Blue coloured part on the end of the fuel rail)

Golf 2 gti k-jetronic problem

First check the filters... There is a high pressure filter near the fuel distributor and a strainer in the tank... Connect a fuel pressure gauge at the fuel distributor... there are 2 test ports for this. One is "system" pressure the other is "control" pressure... you want the "system" port...if no (or very low) pressure then I would suspect the fuel distributor itself... If pressure is good and still no spray from the injectors then either the fuel is very dirty and has clogged the injectors (not very likely except in extreme cases of neglect) or the injectors aren't getting a signal (or an intermittent signal, more likely) from the injection control unit. If none of this helps you will need to get the Bentley manual and follow the troubleshooting steps...;-)

Possibly ignition coil,or crank sensor, however it a process of elimination when it wont start. difficult to say online because there are many things that can cause this problem. I would start by seeing if it has a spark at the plugs. Remove plug lead, get another plug of and push it into the lead. earth the threads of the plug to the engine and crank it. if there is no spark then you have to go further down that avenue. i fyou do have spark then your looking at fuel possibly.
