Missfire on my vw golf gls 2001 on the 2 cylinders is it spark plugs and wires?? The check engine light is on and my air doesnt work could it use gas to make it work ?? Also when im driving my oil...


i'll answer based on the importance of the problem:

1. oil light.
make sure that your oil level is correct. you can check it by removing your dip stick.

2. air is not working.
it means you have a rich mixture (meaning your engine does not have the correct air/fuel ratio). most common cause of this problem is very dirty/very old air filter. if the air filter seems ok, have your fuel injectors and air vaccuums cleaned.

3. misfires.
to check if your high tension wire(htw) is working, detach the suspected wire from the spark plug (detach the end connected to the plug only). turn on your engine. slowly move the detached wire towards the head (cylinder head) and see if there will be sparks. if there are sparks, then spark plugs is your problem

I bought a 2004 VW Jetta GLS 1.8L Turbo earlier today. It has a clean carfax and recent (within a week) negative dealer diagnostics...it overheated. Well...it overheated within 2 minutes of hard...


Hold the dealer accountable, for starters! It could be the thermostat, a coolant leak, a severe engine problem, who knows? You shouldn't have to concern yourself with diagnosing and fixing a car you bought yesterday, unless you bought it as-is.

I have a 2001 VW Cabrio with most of the same codes (P0411, P0103, P1225-1228, P1451, P1425 and P1472) I've read that replacing the fuel pump relay (about $4 online? http://www.jcwhitney.com/replacement-oe-replacement-fuel-pump-relay/p3068141.jcwx?TID=8000000-01VoCaRep1071035&origin=pla&JCW=1&JCW_SRC=PPC&VSID=d50606y2001j1&gclid=CIyYu5TDhrICFcV7Qgodcy8AoA ) should clear at least P1225-1228, P1425 and P1472 (just haven't tried it yet ( http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090114121750AAnyeAj ))

Smoke when cold weather or when accelerating


i would not worry too much about it as diesel cars do let out black sulphur when accelerating it might need a good run at a faster speed to clear it out if it is driven around town a lot at lower speeds
