Vw golf se 2002 engine management light has come on whilst driving and was flashing but stopped, also emmissions workshop has come on display, the car seems to have lost power?


You need to have a scan of the engine done There are a number of problems that could cause those symptoms. Ask your repair shop how much they charge for the scan Our shop does them free, some shops charge. Get a copy of the scan results and have them clear the codes. Than ask for quotes on the repairs.

Vw golf mk4 abs warning light on


If your ABS runs thru clean upon initial starting of the car and only turns on when the car has been put into motion,
You have a vibration occuring near the wheel speed sensors that is tripping the ABS system up.
Is there any howling noise while driving down the road ( like the howl the tires on a truck would make , but more subdued), and it goes away when you are driving down the road and turn one way or the other?

Renault megane engine light flashing and car is juddering.


I have 2 meganes im working on at the moment both have the same problem. the electrical falt light is on coz the pipe has snapped (or come off) under the bonnet on the passangers side close to the window (theres a black box about 2 inch wide the pipe connects underneath). if I reconect the pipe and grab the engien with both hands it wobbles and the pipe pulls off. I suspect this is coz one (or all) the engien mountings are shagged. and this will be the cause of the juddering when driveing in first and second gears. solutions iv have come across for juddering involve changeing the coil pack but thats nothing to do with the problem my 2 cars have as one of them has new coils. they are 1.6 petrol, p reg and s reg

I have a 1.8T golf gti mk4, last night is juddered as i was doing 70mph, i lost speed and was fighting the engine for speed/power, the engin management light came on and flashed for 3/4 minutes then went...


im willing to bet that you had a coil pack fail on you. they are one of the most common failures on the 1.8t engine. another thing i would check is for any boost hoses that may have popped off if you were accelerating quickly.


but before you go and buy a new coil pack. unplug your maf sensor and see if it runs any better than before. if the problem goes away when you unplug you maf then the mass air flow sensor is bad. but if its the same then you have a bad coil pack.
