My VW Mk1 1.4i 2008 over fueling and does not idle... whats could be wrong?

If your fuel pressure is good, timing is good, and compression is good, it is very possible that your ECM, (Engine Control Module) is bad. The computer is not properly modulating the pulse width on the injectors. The pulse width is too wide/long causing the injectors to dump too much fuel. In short, the injectors are staying open too long. Check your connections on your ECM to make sure there are snug. Try removing your battery terminals, unplug the ECM connectors for a few minutes and then plug the ECM back in, reconnect the battery terminals and try it again and see if this helps. If this does not work the ECM is more than likely bad. Hope this helps.

Mk1 vw golf cabrio: hot starting problem?

Probably the starter needs to be replaced. If it was the battery, you would have more problems cold than hot.
