Question about 2004 Volkswagen Golf
Electronic diagnosis has identified faults with the two fuel sensors on my VW FSI 1.4 -2004. These have been replaced --but I am still experiencing serious intermittent loss of engine power.
My car has now been sorted.
Turns out it was a problem with the feul pump. cost another £200 to get everything done but its been running fine for a few weeks now.

Number of things
1 fuel injectors
2 worn throttle body
3 inside gas tank sending unit filter needs replaced
4 a/c compressor failing
5 replace air filter
6 depending on mileage of vehicle worn cam, bearings oil rings
7 oil and water mixing together (oil will look like chocolate milk on dipstick if this happens
8 not enough air from the electric fan in front of vehicle (hook constant power and a switch with power key off)
9 wrong fuel type (maybe you car requires premium)
10 alternator wareing out and makeing a slow drop in power
11 binding brakes or emergency brake line binding
12 worn sparks plugs wires and electrical unit that houses this
13 worn capacitor looks like a little tear can with power points on it
this is just basic diagnosing without being there to see the vehicle in person these are the things right off the top of my head that i can help diagnose right now
some of these things wont show on a diagnostic cause there more mechanical and sensors wear with mechanical
hope this helped you in your quest

I have a Golf 1.6 FSI 2004 model. I have just had problems where I was losing power when driving on an incline. When going up something steeper, my speed reduced to around 20mph and I was being overtaken by lorries! to cut a very long story short, after telling VW that I suspected it was exhaust problems, (having experienced such problems on previous vehicles in the past) it took them various diagnostics and referrals back to VW, for the garage to confirm it was infact a problem with the exhaust. It cost me £1300 for them to confirm what I said some months ago what I thought the problem was. It was a case of 'the computer says no'! Because the problem could not be picked up on diagnostics, there was 'nothing wrong with the vehicle'. My advice to anyone after my dealings with 'VW Customer Care', is to say that they don't care at all. As soon as I can be rid of my car...I will, and it will never again be a VW.
