Question about Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

2008 vw R32 strong vibration at on cold start ( but not everyday) and sometimes the car will not start. I come back later and it starts normally with no vibrations. Took it to the dealers twice (since its under warranty) the first time they changed the battery but didn't solve the problem) and the second time they did a detailed check and says nothing is wrong with the car ( since it didn't vibrate or anything in front of them). I don't know what to do. A friend suggested it could be a sensor malfunction or something but the dealer claims nothing is wrong. please help.

Dear this happens a couple of time.

You complain but nothing near your complaints happen while at the service centre. And it takes a lot of talking and shouting before you can be believed to be relaying the true occurences of your car experiences.

I would suggest you take the car for a scan and reach me on email: onifadeadewunmi@hotmail.com about any findings.

It could be some sensor malfunction too but leave guess work out of it for now and just opt for a scan first.

Cheers.

I want to do an oil & filter change (eventually) on my son's 2008 VW R32. Is it a big deal? or Should the dealer do it ? I have done many oil changes in my life. I have confidence... Thanks, Bruce


bruce.this job is the same as for ANY CAR.the oil canister is between the engine and the firewall.the sumplug is on the bottom of the sump pan.(as normal)fill with 5/40 full synthetic oil(the best you can afford)VW RECOMMEND 10k/1 year oil changes for this engine.(and so you can impress your son the R stands for "regulator"(engine)...the 32 is obvious (3.2 litre.)
regards.geoff.(nice car,bye the way)

No glows plugs on a vw passat from cold


I have an older VW and it has a fuse(not a normal looking fuse) for the glow plugs. Start at the glow plug wire and follow it back to Hopefully the fuse check for voltage on both sides, sometimes the fuse will look good but it is not.
