Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf
I have a spare car MK1 as described above and whenever I drive it now,the car jerks and cuts out,the timing was set properly,the carburetor was cleaned,but still it does that.Could it be the coil or perhaps the fuel filter being blocked??
It mostly happens at a traffic light when the clutch is pushed in and then the car cuts out immediately.
The first thing you may want to do is to replace your coolant temperature sensor. This is arguably the most important sensor on the vehicle, since it tells the vehicle's computer how hot or cold the engine is. What's most likely happening, is the sensor is sending an incorrect reading of temperature, making the computer think it's warmer than it really is, causing the car to attempt to start too lean.
The sensor is generally under $20 and is easy to purchase and install. It's usually located near the thermostat housing with 2 wires going to it.
I hope this helps and let me know if you need any further assistance! :)

You'll need to use the wiring from the 2.0L motor. Your best bet is to get Bentley manuals for the car the motor came from and for yours. They have very very detailed wiring diagrams, to do the swap.
