Hi
Have you tried putting the car i gear handbrake off and rock the car back and forward? this usually frees the starter... hitting with a hammer can damge casings etc...

My Golf mk4 TDI will start if left over night first time but when I try again it won't start.


Timing is likely out of spec, you need a vag-com to set timing on a TDI. even the dealer who did mine didn't know this and screwed it up. I set mine with this vag-com program from ross-tech and now it starts great and gets better fuel econ.

My golf mk4 tdi boot wont open atall


Get hold of a can of Plus Gas or even WD40

Open the slot where the key goes into with a thin screw driver push the thin tube on the can then into the hole

Cover with a piece of tissue , give it a god blast and leave it for a few hours

Do it again and this time gently rock the key as if you are trying to opem the boot

It should free off

As they say if you dont use it you lose it !

Golf mk4 tdi major oil leak from lower engine. oil warning light on.


If is loosing oil too fast the light will come up,because oil pump won't compesate for oil pressure lost without proper oil level.Anyhow,i'm thinking oil pan has bad gasket or, or possibly could be hole in the pan.It happens when small rock on the road hits pan so hard it will make a hole.Cheap materials like Magnesium sulfate that are commonly used on VW's these days are just not quality.Hope I could help you.

Ibiza tdi won't turn over when a try to start it. Battery has charge, whats wrong?


try checking your starter motor has not jammed, if it is manual, put it in gear and rock the car backwards and forwards and then try it again, if that doesn't work maybe your starter motor it's self may need changing or repair, hope this helps
