Open Question

I have a VW GLI 2003 VR6 MK4 and I think it have a problem. When I stop at the red light or when I'm stock in the traffic, the engine just stop and all the dash light flash (EPC, hand brake, batterie). I have to wait few minutes and after it restart normaly?!? Sometimes, it's like if the engine is working on 3 or 4 and after 6 cylinders, the RMP is waving and the brake comes hard under my foot?! I went to the dealer 3 months ago and they changes the batterie and the alternator. The problem stop since but yesterday it start it back. This morning, the cars is working A1. but I know it will appen again. What could it be?????

SOURCE: Engine management fault

this is going to sound nuts but its true.if your brakelight switch is defective that light will flash.
see if you brake lights are working.if it is automatic trans you will notice the shifter will not always release when you depress brake pedal.
if its not brakelight switch get it autoscaned with a VAG.com

How can I diagnose a fuel delivery problem on a 2003 VW Jetta GLI 2.8L


you can unhook the fuel line where it connects to the fuel rail and turn the key on and see if you get fuel but it's risky you don't want it to spill over the engine. you may just need a new filter or maybe an intermittent short at the fuel pump. could even just be the power supply plug for the fuel pump

2003 bmw 325i makes buzzin noise after driving for half an hour on a warm weather


If this is after you stopped the engine , is is possible the Cooling Fan is still powered for a short time to cool the system even after you left the car.
In some rare occasions ( VW vr6 p.e.) there is also an electrical water-pump to keep the cooling going after stopping the engine.

Im replacing water pump on a 2003 vw jetta gli vr6. I need a polygon socket to remove the water. I looked few places no one had it including the dealership. where can i find it??


The dealer has one (owned by the techs) but they are not going to let you use it. They are not in the tool rent business. Any repair shop that works on VW will have one. If you want one you will have to buy it from a tool dealer, find a Snap-on or MATCO dealer in your area.

VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash


Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.
