Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

I have a 1997 golf gti and when i **** from 1st to 2nd something hits the ground i dont know what it is. Secondlly its making a bit of a grinding noise from the exhast manifold almost sounds like a diesel and it started doing it after i added injector cleaner. 3rd in 4th and 5th gear the clutch has a little grinding noise in it but only when the clutch is all the way out and when your foot is on the gas i was told it may need a new clutch i think it needs to be adjusted...... engine was replaced it has only 40,000 miles on it

Sounds like when they replaced the engine some of the clamps and mountings should have been replaced as well. The clutch should certainly have been replaced. First to second is almost always a big change under acceleration so it is probably an engine mounting that is making the noise as sounding like a big clunk, the connection between the exhaust manifold and the exhaust pipe is probably where the other noise is coming from. It is a spring loaded joint and does take a hammering when one of the mountings go bad.

Electric windows not working, how do i fix this golf gti 115 mark


To isolate your problem a few questions needed.
  • Do you hear any noise when you hit the switch
  • Does it move a bit
  • Can you operate it from the outside locking mechanism
If you can hear the motor (regulator) but window does not operate, then we established that power is being supplied and fuse/relay are ok. Your problem is a bad window regulator or a guide cable is fraying and caused it to knot up on the guides.

If you hear nothing at all then you first need to figure whether it's a fuse, a relay or the wiring is bad.

Mk4 gti 1.8t cut out


it might be the e break sensor . ive heard of them causing shut downs . also check all fluid levels if your coolant is too low the sensor will shut it down lol. and i think theres a break light recall that might have something to do with it . take it in to vw if you have the means for a scan . of find someone in your area with a vag com . it can read the error codes from the computer . good luck

Noisey Clutch accelarating in 1st and 2nd gear


Sounds like its not sticking to the flywheel instantly but skippng a little bit and the squeek could be the clutch plate springs groaning.If the clutch and flywheel have been used hard it could have a heat glaze on it that resists grip Probably need to get flywheel machined when you eventualy change the clutch.

1997 vw golf


u need an air compressor ( prefferably) an air gun or really good ratchet, a VERY long extension for ur ratchet/ air gun and a torx bit. Cant remember which size bit it is by heart.

Need an air gun to remove the wheel lug nuts, and then the center bolt from the axle. (think its 32mm)

Then with ur torx bit, remove the 6 bolts around the axle, they are about 4 inches from the tranny.

The extension for ur ratchet needs to be about 30 inches long.
Good luck.

Problems with gear box


Hi

If the clutch feels ok and isn't biting right at the bottom or right at the top then it sounds like its time for a recon or 2nd hand gearbox to be fitted.

I recently fitted a 2nd gearbox to a seat ibiza GTi which actually has the 2.0 Golf engine fitted to it and it wasn't too bad at all, but it is adviseable to fit a clutch kit whilst the box is off.

Very best regards
