1988 VW golf memphis edition

Hello,

I have a 1988 vw golf memphis edition and am trying to find out what size engine it has. I am in working in Spain right now and the car is european spec. I know it is a 4 cyl but would like more specific info on the motor itself. I believe it is a 1.8L but need to be sure because it may need an alternator. I have the VIN but it doesn't specify the engine type. where might I be able to find this info

Thanks
Frank

Hello!

Most probably is the distributor, you should check that first, maybe it got cracks on it or its not sealing perfectly and "steals" the spark when got moisture around.
What engine type you have on the golf?
Other problem could be from faulty ignition cable

1991 vw golf gti- RPM stop working!


judging by the amount of km it has done i would say the rpm drive is faulty, this measures the amount of rotation in the camshaft and shows the "revolutions per minute". when this goes faulty it stops the read out on the dial, so you want to be looking for a device that measures the speed that the engine is turning, if you have, replace it and it should solve the problem
