Question about 1998 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

I have a vw golf gl 3/98 auto that dies when you put it in gear to take off. I have had the airflow meter re-calibrated and flow tested fuel pressure is ok. You have to press on the accelerator alittle bit to get it started. I do not know what size engine is in it as the books did not come with it. If some one has a way of identifying the engine and a wiring diagram of the engine and computer wiring that would be good. thanks GO.

There should be two tags either on the core support under the hood right around the radiator cap one will be the emmisions standards which will have the smog component locations and vacum lines diagramed and the other usually has the belt installation diagram one or both of these will say what size the motor is usually in really small print depending on the maker.
almost all automatic transmission shift by the use of vacum. if you have a broken ,loose ,or disconnected vacum line that is bleeding off vacum when it shouldnt be. then when you ingauge the vacum cylider on the transmission and have the brake pedal depressed the vacum is being depleted to the point that proper air fuel ratios are not being attained and the car dies. vacum is a very necassary part of the volumetric efficency of your motor and is required in order for the motor to run. check the vacum lines for splitting cracking and being disconnected. exspecially around the regular service points oil filler cap trans dip stick ect. this is where you'll usually find one to be damaged or dislodged.

Hi. thsi is a vw thread. If it is a vw and it runs ok, but just heavy on fuel, then i would replace the temp sensor. If it is a ford then i suggest asking under the ford heading for your car.

94 VW Golf. Starts and runs sitting, drive it about 10 mins and it just dies and won't restart. Have changed Coil, wires, plugs, cranck shaft sensor. Fuel Pump/Filter?


a)When you go to restart it does it die right after restart?
b)Does it die after you put it in gear after restart?
c)Doesn't restart at all?
Not sure if you changed fuel pump? If you did eliminate it from cast of characters.

If a & c engine main relay or fuel pump
If b torque converter clutch solenoid

My car idles at 2k rpm as soon as the check engine light goes off


Most likely airflow meter giving trouble. Remove it and try cleaning it you will get spray for this in an auto factor's or an electrical repair shop. Cleaning may not fix it as it may just be worn out and will need to be replaced. A genuine V.W. one is expencive but enquire at your auto factors they will be able to get you one at about half the price. Hope this helps. Cheers

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.

It should be attached to the air-box. Where you put in the air-filter, there will be a black cylinder with a connection / wire coming off of it. That is airflow meter

Replace the Airflow Meter, then take off all those parts you put on. If you have a scan tool, the long term fuel trim is probably %25+Which is definately an airflow meter, but it's definately worth trying it anyway, they've had such a problem w/ them you can get one for under $100 easy.
