It may not be powerfull enough.
The speedometer scale on cars is generic that fits many other models and those other models may go faster then yours.
Check your owner manual for specs.

I have a t reg golf auto only done 30k but takes ages to change form second into third .


this is a computer controlled autobox.on a flat road put it into drive and without using the gas pedal let the car accelerate itself to max speed (about 35mph)then stop and do the same with only an inch of gas pedal.stop then gun it,put your foot hard down to the floor until you reach a speed that is just safe for the road conditions.
you have just reset the computer.....if you drive it gently for a few miles,you may feel a difference,if not then get it onto a diagnostic for a health check....

Epc light on 2001 golf mark 4 car running ok, what


EPC: Electronic Power Control

The ME7 engine management system uses electronic controls to operate the throttle valve rather than the usual braided cable. Pedal resistance and operation matches cable designs so that the operator is unlikely to differentiate. In an event of a failure with either one of the accelerator pedal position sensor (G79 or G185), the other sensor signal would be used in a limited capacity with functions such as cruise control deactivated. If both sensors malfunction, the ECM will limit engine speed to proximately 1200 rpm.

Now as to your question regarding error codes (DTC, SAE/VAG fault codes), as VW scan tool or similar needs to be hooked up to your vehicle in order to read which ones are stored in the ECU. This codes will tell you which area of the system came from and what problem they are related to. Only with a scanner makes all this possible, without it, it would be an expensive guessing game besides being very unreliable.

New golf tdi went 12 miles smells burning wheels not hot does not smell under bonnett any ideas


  1. A stuck brake caliper piston causing the brake pads to ride on the rotors while car is in motion.
  2. Improper hand brake adjustment will cause the rear caliper to hook up even if the lever is all the way down.
  3. Manual transmission operates with a semi-metallic clutch disc similar to brake pads can produce similar odor when you ride on your clutch pedal.
  4. You could also be riding on your brake pedal while you operate your vehicle.
  5. Last but not least, you might have run over plastic debris and stuck on your exhaust pipe melting in the process.
This are common sources of burning rubber which people mistaken think their tires are burning. The only way you can burn your tires is if you do wheel spins, high speed braking and locking up your wheels and setting it on fire.

Problem with clip that holds clutch cable on to pedal


where is the clip at on the car? do you have a clutch cable or is it hydraulic? If it is a cable and the clip is on the outside the passenger compartment replace the clip and adjust the play in the cable there should be about a 1/4" play. If it is and self adjusting when you need to replace the cable.
