Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
Posted by Anonymous on
Agreed with yogegoy,
Old days are gone , on diagnostics without scaner you have small chances to find the problem .
But you can check basics - Spark(you said it's ok) , timing(timing belt can jump a tooth or two), fuel delivery (disconnect fuel hose and crank the engine, if flow is strong - ok) .
Also I think on those cars throttle is electronicly controled unit , so it needs adaptation after replacement with apropriate tool (scaner).

Should have it scanned for blink codes (DTC) before you start speculating on parts you think are malfunctioning, replacing them even if they were just fine.
Even if you don't have it scanned, at least have proper knowledge diagnosing systems using Benrley's Factory repair manual.
Nine out of ten times I still have to glance my manual's pages just to feel satisfied that I did it the right way besides the torque spesifications.
Just my opinion, geustimating is long gone and replaced with a system that tells you it's about to break or it's gone, regardless if it's an electronic or mechanical part.
