On the top of the gearbox where the links from the gearstick attach to the selector there is a pin that goes down into the gearbox. Wriggle the selector on top of the gearbox to see if there is much play in it. If so the pin may need replacing. It could be cheaper than a gearbox.

Sounds like the syncromesh which i often have problems with, these VW vehicles use the same gearbox as used on the seat and the skoda as well and they can be a bit troublesome where you get a driver who has never driven an older vehicle which had no syncro of first gear at all so the way they are taught to drive whereby they select first gear whilst still moving ,which as all old hands know is not correct and causes premature failure of the syncros .Hence your problem here .not a lot you can do except to strip the gearbox and replace the syncro

SOURCE: golf mk4 tdi major oil leak

If is loosing oil too fast the light will come up,because oil pump won't compesate for oil pressure lost without proper oil level.Anyhow,i'm thinking oil pan has bad gasket or, or possibly could be hole in the pan.It happens when small rock on the road hits pan so hard it will make a hole.Cheap materials like Magnesium sulfate that are commonly used on VW's these days are just not quality.Hope I could help you.

My Golf mk4 TDI will start if left over night first time but when I try again it won't start.


Timing is likely out of spec, you need a vag-com to set timing on a TDI. even the dealer who did mine didn't know this and screwed it up. I set mine with this vag-com program from ross-tech and now it starts great and gets better fuel econ.

Turbo cut off


That's a (relatively) common problem with mk4 TDIs. Likely causes are the MAF (= Mass Air Flow) sensor in the air-intake (directly behind the air-filter) and/or the N75 Boost Pressure Controle Valve.

You should have your car's ECU read for faultcodes to troubleshoot the cause. It might also be useful to create several diagnostics logs with VAGCOM while test-driving.

This can be done by a mechanic using VAGCOM or by a VW dealer. See http://www.tdiclub.com/ (and it's forum) for more information and perhaps help.
