hi, i would like to warn u that i had this issue with the same car, eventually the gear box stopped going above 2nd gear ,would not change up even in semi manual,i was told i needed new gear box,had a recon box fitted, but now the garage says i need a new computer cause it not communicating with the gear box properly,cost so far 1200 pound + what ever computer cost, fingers crossed this works
It sounds like your thermostat is not opening. You can take the hose off which contains the thermo and remove the thermo. Now there should be nothing keeping the coolant from circulating except the radiator which may be pluged.
You now will not get heat but this will get you to the garage. Let me know it this does not work,
Get someone to check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, to verify whether you have oil pressure or not. These engine/vehicles, have 2 warning sensors & a control module in the instrument panel. Once you know you have pressure for sure, then you can proceed from there.
There are two pressure switches. One for oil pressure and one for a dirty oil filter. Are you sure you've changed the right switch. If car drives for 30 mls it doesn't sound like you need an engine. The spluttering is likely to be completely unrelated to the oil warning I suspect.
no it wont cause a misfire, misfire is caused by worn uot spark plugs and or plug wires or bad injector, but some golfs have very coming problem with the ignition module going bad causing number 1 cylinder to misfire
