Sounds like it could be your coolant temperature sender thats faulty.It could be reading the incorrect temperature and sending the wrong signal to the ecu when the engine is warm.Sometimes even having the fault memory read will not show any faults in system.Try changing the sensor[located on the engine near waterhousing on side of head]and see what happens.Good luck.

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.....

I have a vw golf gti. P reg 1996. recently it has


Hi Frank
If as you say....Nothing is happening at all when you turn the key, you appear to have one of two problems. A faulty starter motor--or--- A faulty ignition switch. If you can tap the starter motor while another person keeps the key turned to the start position, and the engine now starts you now know it is a starter problem. When doing this PLEASE MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF GEAR.
If it should start up, or even engage the starter motor while IN GEAR, serious injuries could happen, and I do not mean to your car.
Good luck
John
