Question about 1995 Volkswagen Golf
This is nothing to do with your accelleration cable!
Please have this attended to immediately or serious damage can occur to your engine.
The condition you describe can occur in a diesel due to a condition known as pre ignition/detonation. The problem with this condition (if this is what is occurring) is that under certain conditions the engine can reach a point where it will not shut off via the ignition switch and will continue to over rev until it blows literally blows itself apart!
There are two main causes of this attributed to;
1) Problems with a worn injector pump which is injecting too much fuel too early
2) Combustible material being drawn into the air intake manifold - this can occur sometimes via crankcase vapors. On a highly worn engine, gases can blow past the sides of the pistons and into the crankcase, then carry oil vapors from the crankcase into the air intake via the breather and this will fuel the engine and create over revs.
*Check that your car has not been overfilled with engine oil*. Also check for any evident oil leaks on the engine on the inlet side as it has been known for these to get drawn into the inlet and create this condition.
It is important to have these things checked out. I would advise also that you have your vehicle scanned for fault codes in case there are other factors involved that may be contributing to the problem.
Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.
