Hi

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.

Golf GT Tdi 115 - performance when warm.


you dont say what miles the car has done.but you should now be using semi synthetic 20/50 oil and try using a fuel additive(redex/wynns)to clean the injectors.if you are using oil it is possible that the engine has lost some of its compression due to ring/valve wear.did you know that to convert your engine to a 130/150bhp unit,you only need to change the ecu try"diesel tuning"website.....

Automatic shudders on some gear changes.


This car has both options of auto transmission plus manual gear **** so the only reason it can shudder when the clutch is not fully released and thus takes some time, that's when it shudders, but on accelerating this will not happen cos the centripetal clutch has enough torque such that the clutch is pressed hard to the cam & therefore no shuddering. On cruising speed the probability of clutch slipping making the car shudder. Thus changing the clutch assembly ought eliminate this problem....sodeep
