You are experiencing detonation. Main causes are:

  • Low octane fuel - Use higher octane rating fuel.
  • Incorrect ignition timing - Readjust timing
  • Too high compression ratio(due to engine mods such as skimmed head or high compression pistons) - replace modified parts
  • Air/fuel mix too lean - Replace fuel filter and readjust.

The water inside the car is coming from a loose drain line on the A/C. This issue is not that uncommon.

The drain tube is located toward the bottom of the fire wall in the engine compartment. There are several U shaped cut outs. Two of them are going to be bolts. The other one is larger of the three and has the drain tube behind it. There is a rubber flap that covers the tube. You'll need to hold the lid up, and use some kind of pipe cleaner, or wire to get the gunk out. Might have a splash of water on the ground. Depends on how much water is backed up in the system. Some people get between a few inches to a half a gallon.

Here is a diagram (#3 is the drain tube)

Once you have drained the A/C water, you still have to do something with all of the water in your floorboards. If it stays in your carpet, two things will happen:
1) Rust
2) Mold/Mildew

Dry the carpet as mush as possible, as soon as possible. You may even need to pull the carpet up (carefully, there is a soundproofing material underneath) and let it dry outside of the car. While that carpet is out, look for any rusty spots in the floor. If you find any, treat them with Permatex Rust Treatment. Prepare the surface first according to the instructions (very easy) and spray the Permatex on the bad areas. It will dry into a black coating that can be painted or left as-is. It actually converts the rust chemically into a primer.

I know it sounds like a lot of hassle, but it is worth it to have a dry, clean-smelling car. Spend a couple of hours doing this and it shouldn't be a problem for a long time to come.

I have this problem on my 88 mk2 vw golf, when you come to a stoplight the car starts to shake a little, but once you get on the gas it disappears, other than that she gets up and goes.


motor mounts sounds like it may be your problem. The motor will shake and stuff, and if they are bad bad, it may break more.. But yes,in order for a motor to work properly, it needs to be mounted tight for all of the moving parts. It can sound like it's stalling. Other than that, I'd suggest a bunch of other things Throttle positioning sensor for one. , sticky EGR, fuel filters, AIC Air idle control. I would say wait and see after mount is fixed, but if you price these things, you may find them cheaper than you may think. Good luck let me know how you make out. Cheers from Nova Scotia

sounds real easy either a bad idle air control solenoid or more likley a blown throttle body gasket. to test fro a blown gasket, with engine running and cool spray carb cleaner or brake cleaner around base of tb were it bolts to intake. when it hits the bad area, should idle down and be normal for a second or 2. iac is possible,try this first since its so common and let me know
