You must have the traction control system scanned for the fault code that is present when the light is on.

SOURCE: 2005 Golf TDI Diesel - EGR "Emissions workshop" fault light

Hi, The EGR valve itself is on a set of flexible pipework - usually stainless steel - which runs between the inlet manifold and the exhaust manifold. The EGR actuator valve is pneumatically / vacuum operated by a solenoid valve, controlled by the ECU ( aka the brane). It's not usual for the EGR valve itself to fail, more likely the solenoid valve or its electrical connector getting dirty. If you google for VAG TDI N75 valve you should get all the info you could possibly ever need :-)

Hope this helps, D.

SOURCE: whistleing sound on golf gt tdi

It's probably the turbo you're hearing. They spin very fast and make a noise like that. Ever hear an 18-wheeler go by you and accelerate and they make that high-pitched whistle? That's the turbo spooling up. Now, if it sounds like a dentist's drill, that's usually a sign that the turbo is failing, but I'd bet that since your car is under four years old, as long as you've kept up on the maintenance, it's the normal turbo spool.

Hey spend the extra cash and go direct to VW web site, most manufactures offer online manuals for a small fee. well worth it, especially on newer timing belts. its not your old 85 toyota. good luck

By boeinga1 on Nov 17, 2010 2001 VW Diesel Golf TDI. Car started no problem. Drove to gas station. Stopped for gas. glow plug light wouldn't come on, engine wouldn't start, engine turning but not starting....


i think glow plug replacement needed. ever used starting fluid in cold to start?try this, next time no start, cycle your key and let the light come on, wait till it goes off, turn key again until light goes off, if you have to do this more than 3 times, and it runs fine, replace the glow plugs only then. thank you for choosing fixya.com!

The dash on my 2001 golf gt tdi works intermiterly, sometimes everything is fine, others either the dials don't work (including the mileometer), or the computer display does not work or the whole thing...


this is going to hurt, as the dash is all electrionic when it goes wrong you can only do two things...one ,is live with it, the other is a new dash module.or ecm.both are an arm and a leg.

Remove the rear wheel and inspect your brake hard ware for damage and adjustment. If thats fine, inspect the shock/ strut assembly for wear.
