Hello Joe,
If the engine has over heated it may have blown the head gasket, you say the engine noise changed and you have power loss, get a mechanic to check it and try not to drive it

Oil change and cam belt/timing chain change for volkswagen golf 1.9cc tdi 130 bhp, 1992 model


support engine. remove coolant reservoir. remove serpentine belt. remove serpentine belt tensioner. remove bolts from mount. carefully raise engine up and move mount out of the way.(hard to explain and this is hard to do you have to have the engine in the perfect position and whatnot) remove the top plastic cover. with 19mm socket rotate engine clockwise until hole in cam lines up with hole in head. insert vw special tool to hold cam. remove the 4 6mm bolts on crank pulley. remove plastic covers. with white paint, mark belt to cam and belt to crank. loosen tensioner. remove belt. transfer marks to new belt. strongly suggest replacing water pump. reinstall t-belt. put the tensioner somewhat tight. rotate the engine fully twice. loosen tensioner bolt and adjust to perfect tension using needle and v-groove on adjuster. install is reverse of removal.

VW Golf TDI enjin power loss and shudder at certain temperature


I think i would be inclined to look at the coil pack ,and the wiring for this where it comes from the ECU ,i have never come across this before but its possible if the ECU isnt passing the correct information to the coil pack to fire in the right order ,what about the crank position sensor wiring are they shorting somewhere ?' Have a good look at the wiring and if necessary take the black outer sheafing off to inspect the wires inside

I have a 1.8T golf gti mk4, last night is juddered as i was doing 70mph, i lost speed and was fighting the engine for speed/power, the engin management light came on and flashed for 3/4 minutes then went...


im willing to bet that you had a coil pack fail on you. they are one of the most common failures on the 1.8t engine. another thing i would check is for any boost hoses that may have popped off if you were accelerating quickly.


but before you go and buy a new coil pack. unplug your maf sensor and see if it runs any better than before. if the problem goes away when you unplug you maf then the mass air flow sensor is bad. but if its the same then you have a bad coil pack.

had the same problem in mine we found it was the cam shaft positioning sensor. my van had shut off and we had no current to plugs and at first thought coil pack but still nothing. no power to coil pack. then found sensor no good. also we replaced the sensor with an after market sensor and worked fine for couple months then started to shut off again. after a little research found we needed original cam shaft pos sen from dealer and since then no problems. hope this works for you.

Put a vacuum gauge on it and see if you have a steady reading. You may have a bad cam lobe or partially burned valve which will show up as a quickly fluctuating vacuum reading. Backfiring is generally caused by the above or by the ignition being too far advanced (yours is not adjustable but if you had the distributor out?, you may have put it in one tooth off.)
