Check for vacuum leaks. Also try cleaning the ISV.

SOURCE: my 03' vw gti won't start. it has a normal crank

does it occur mainly after a rain or washing of the vehicle / and it may also be a feature that some vehicles have that will not allow it to start when such things as low oil is sensed or other fluid levels ...or perhaps a wire is jarred just enough {an exposed wire }to touch ground causing this as well or maby a cracked or dry rotted vacuum line is an issue ..even a loose fuse check these areas as well .......and look for anything just obvious disconnected corroded or otherwise .....hope this helps you

SOURCE: Why does my 91 VW Jetta stall out and lose power while driving?

I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.

SOURCE: 2002 passat v6 fsi engine. 90000miles..recently i

This vehicle is due for a Fuel pump.

Mixing and using to many of these Gas treatment is not a good thing, i prefer putting in 1/2 of the bottle during a fill up and only after 3k or every 6 months.

Now what to do:

You need to have this one serviced.

*** If you plan to just keep driving try refilling it at a 1/2 tank to see if this will dilute all the additives you have in the tank and clear things up.

Hope this tip helps.

I have a problem with my golf 4 gti 1.8t....when it's cold it doesn't change gears I always have to wait and warm it up.... Once it's hot it will change the gears normal.


Hello Bongs,

Not an uncommon complaint...varied VW models (and German cars in general) are known to be hard to shift when cold.

Less-than-stellar 1-2 syncros? Zero tolerance build specs?

Some people have reported double clutching helps..some have suggested moly additives..others have suggested changing the gear oil to synthetic. Give your local VW dealer a call and inquire about any additives they recommend for your hard shifting GTi.

Have a ****** flush done and also change the ****** filter and check again. Also if the TPS is out of range or thermostat stuck open you will have the same symptoms.

Serious electrical problems wiv vw golf mk4 gti turbo yr 2000


I had a VW rabbit that developed mad electrical problems. It started when one day the headlights remained on and would not shut off. It turned out that a $2.00 gasket for the antenna wire had failed. This allowed road water from the wheel well to leak onto the fuse box. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak.
Check all fuses and electrical wiring for signs of shorts or corrosion.
