Hi PANEL BEATER,

Possible causes for misfires:

  • Emission control System malfunctioning
  • Timing belt installed wrong or incorrectly tensioned
  • Malfunction in secondary ignition system ( check cap, rotor - pull and reseat)
  • Injector problems
  • Vacuum leaks - check hoses, listen for hissing
Get back to me with your findings. We can proceed from there.

Mike

VW golf 4 03 model `s spark plugs wires are damaged by rats & are now partly not insulated can these cause the car to stall & cut when driving? It also gets to 90 degrees on the engine temperature...


Partly insulated spark plugs wires will cause your engine to misfire badly as they will cause High Voltage short-circuits by arcing to nearby engine parts: they will certainly cause your engine to stall and cut off! The misfiring will also cause timing issues and cause your engine to overheat and 'knock'.
This is a serious problem that could badly damage your engine so I suggest that you replace the damaged cables immediately. By the way, using ordinary electrical insulation tape will not help much as they are not designed for high voltage (kV range) and the cost of high voltage rubberized insulation tape as an interim solution may be higher than the cost of a cable kit.
Hope it helps. Let me know how you go.
