Question about 1991 Volkswagen GTI

1 Answer

G plate golf gti

My golf is garaged 7/8 months of the year. I took it out for a run recently and it seemed to be running well. However today whilst accelerating large puffs of white smoke came out the exhaust, the car was not missing nor overheating, anybody any ideas what this could be? could it be from lying in the garage, just passed an mot aswell, thanks. Debbie

Code 16518 on mk4 golf


Can't by pass as oxygen sensors control your fuel

I suspect your exhaust converter has failed & the car has
been running rich for years & ruined it

Wouldn't your repair guy be able to solve all your issues,
after all you were at a shop for some work

Sounds like they sold some service instead of diagnosing
the reason you were there

VW GOLF MK3 GTI 8v starting problems


My mk3 1996 16v 2ltr was playing up, wouldnt start when cold, wouldnt rev above 4500-5000. I changed the ignition switch, ecu relay, petrol pump relay, plugs,plug leads, coil, and finally, checked the hall sender on the dizzy, and found a broken wire in the dizzy body. Got a 2nd hand dizzy from a breakers for 40 quid, (150 or more new) and all is well. (I actually took the car to two garages and they couldnt find the problems, no faults registered on vagcom).

My vw golf 1.4 cuts out as i approach junctions, traffic lights etc. took it to the garage, they tested it and said it was fine. when it cuts out the alternator workshop lights come on, but the garage say...


Is it a VW specialist? Ask them to put it on VAGCOM equipment (it's a software program which can connect to the ECU by a cable which plugs under the dash. If they don't have it or just generic software with less functionality, go to a VW specialist (independent if possible it'll be cheaper) and it should help identify the issues. Stalling at 30mph is scary

Oxygen sensor could also be a pest for you,cloged fuel filter? these are rather inexpensive checks you could do first,,good luck

Noisey Clutch accelarating in 1st and 2nd gear


Sounds like its not sticking to the flywheel instantly but skippng a little bit and the squeek could be the clutch plate springs groaning.If the clutch and flywheel have been used hard it could have a heat glaze on it that resists grip Probably need to get flywheel machined when you eventualy change the clutch.

Problems with gear box


Hi

If the clutch feels ok and isn't biting right at the bottom or right at the top then it sounds like its time for a recon or 2nd hand gearbox to be fitted.

I recently fitted a 2nd gearbox to a seat ibiza GTi which actually has the 2.0 Golf engine fitted to it and it wasn't too bad at all, but it is adviseable to fit a clutch kit whilst the box is off.

Very best regards
