No power and when needed a jump cables got way to hot


no elecric power (gauges die?) or no engine power.?
jumper cables got hot. and not results, no crank?

lets work that. too hot
Walfart cables? tiny cables do that. (200 amps it is)
hooked them up backwards , OMG, that invites a nice acid bath
or far far worse.. really?

the walfart cables are for like starting a smart car or a 1liter golf cart.
bet the bigones. 8 gage minimum smaller is better.
the more you spend the better they are, copper is not cheap.

6 is best if doing V8s or in cold weather.

1995 GRAND PRIX GTP ROUGH IDLE TILL CAR WARMS-UPcAR


Have you ever cleaned the automatic idle speed control valve and threottle butterfly? It may be your problem. Try the following to clean these parts.
To correct this problem Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.

Where is the thermostat located on golf v1 1999 1.6,car been standing 6 months worked fine now water not circulating!!!!!!


Heed of antifreeze coolant temperature!!!
First time you might check the thermostat operating.
The thermostat location for VW Golf 1.6 is inside of coolant thermostat housing placed on back side of the cylinder head. See pictures below.
Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.
4. If the hose is already warm the thermostat is out of order.

Thermostat location, Part number: 032121110B, in german - "Kuehlregle" (Price around $20):

1993 suzuki sidekick 4 door has a rough idle. all 6 injectors are fine. problem is worse when engine is cold . Problem is also worse when the engine is warm and the air conditioner is on.


Check or change plugs and wires, and check timing. Aim a timing light at the mark on the crank. If the mark jumps around, your belt has slipped.

Weird idle when clutch is disengaged


Sounds like a bad idle air motor (That controls idle) But you must pull compiter codes first (The computr tells it what to do)

Question? is the engine's heat normal, if not there's sensor that boosts idle when the engine is cold

If you removed the thrmostat, put it back in.FIRST

Wondering what rpm should a 2002 jetta tdi be idling at?right now it seems at 850 to 900 which seems a bit high. i would figure it to be normal at 550 to 650 , any help is appreciated.


when cold it will idle a tad higher 850 - 900 is normal cold , and around 600 warm. if it is idleing high after warm up then check for excessive coke<carbon> build up in intake and throttle valve.
