Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf
On and off since Feb 08, approx every 6 weeks, it starts misfiring and smelling of stale eggs! It's had it's plugs changed, changed again after 6 weeks plus leads changing that lead to it. Coil pack checked, new one made no difference, old one put back on. Plugs clogged with fuel again on 6th June, cleaned, lamber sensor replaced, 29th June, just started misfiring/shaking when idol and smelling again.............HELP??
If it is hydrogen sulphide it could be coming from an overcharging battery, but in view of the misfire it sounds more like an over-rich fuel mixture could be fouling up your catalytic converter. Best course of action is to get a proper diagnosis at your garage or if you are technically minded you can buy a cheap interface cable and download free VAG diagnostic software and then do it yourself.
Hope this helps! D.
