Question about Golf

Open Question

2004 expo golf car takes to much distance to get the rims up. Will not pull a hill unless their is enough flat distance to get up to operating speed.

Have changed plugs, checked valve gap, and changed the air filter. It had been great and just started with this problem.

SOURCE: loss of power on hills

Hi, i think i answered you in another post.
If not then the likely cause of your problem is turbo related the most common cause is one of the pipes going to the turbo has a small split in it causing this problem.

Nearly all the diesel turbo cars with your problem usually means a pipe needs replacing for the turbo this will need to be checked as it can be difficult to find the damaged pipe because they work under high pressure so actually seeing the damaged part can be difficult so check properly.
If you are unsure then get a garage to check this as they will know the fault and will have a good idea exactly which pipe is damaged.
Worst case of this will be that the turbo needs replacing but this is in the most severe of cases the turbo can blow if the pipe has been damaged for to long as it will be working under the wrong pressure.
What happens is when you acelerate the turbo builds up pressure giving you more power when you need it but when the pipe becomes damaged this pressure is lossed and you then lose power and will cause black smoke coming out of exhaust.

Hope this is some help to you but if you have any problems or questions then give me a shout back and ill be glad to assist you further ok

not all hdi injectors are the same and there are some tricks to replacing the injectors so be careful as you can cause saver damage to your engine if not done correctly.
as the other gye said it may be a turbo pipe but Peugeots being Peugeot it could be any thing your best bet is take it into a dealer and get them to put it on the PPS to diagnos it properly

Since it ran fine before you "fixed" it, go back over the things you changed. Put the old spark plugs back in it. Double check all spark plug wires and ignition connections. Put the bike in a dark area and run it at night, can you see any arcing anywhere?

Tell him to clean the electrical connector at the throttle body with 90% rubbing alcohol. He may want to use a nylon brush on the contact pins while cleaning. I'm pretty sure the car needs a throttle adaptation performed also. Find a shop with a Vag Com scanner, they can do it for you.

My 2004 3400 closed system ,runs hot in town unless heater is on. driving up a mountain pass it gets very hot.on a flat highway runs normal. new t state,resivior cap, both fans work no leaks or smell

Radiator fan motor or radiator fan thermostat defective/

Also there is a relay that operates the fan motor

In town not enough air passing through radiator allowing it to over temp.. With heater fan running acts like cooling fan keeping engine cool

Highway driving ample air passing through radiator without fan.

Hill climbing requires cooling fan/

Hope this helps?

My 2004 GMC Yukon came with 265 70/16. I put on 245 75/16. Was this ok to do, or am I gonna have problems?

you could have problems as the tire may not be wide enough for the rim resulting in tire failure during cornering
the side wall may be sitting too straight up even out at the rim
best talk with a tire shop as they know the best size tire for the rim or the specified tires for the vehicle will be on the decal on the door or door pillar
the 265 dimension is the rim width ( problem area)
the 75 dimension is the distance of the rim edge from the road ( not a real problem but can affect speedo accuracy)

Just bought one of these and it seems like it doesn't hold a charge it goes pretty good and thanafter 15 mins so slow??

Battery powered vehicles like scooters and golf carts have trouble going up hill because smaller electric engines aren't powerful enough or made for nothing more than flat land. You could have a bad battery or the battery isn't being charged enough. I know someone that has a golfcart and it takes approximately 48 hours to charge full. You may want to check the manual about charging times.

Trying to change tyre and wheel wont come off

I was wondering whether you had it on a jack or not. Make sure the flat clears the ground before you start pulling it off.You can't be too rough or you will have the car fall off the jack.What I am guessing at is that the centre hub hole is not large enough for the dust cover of the wheel bearing in the center. Non stock rims sometimes come that gotta grind the centre hole larger.
Now to get it off. If it is in the air, take a sledge hammer and do some "putting - golfing" with it and sledge the rim (from the outside hitting the outside of the rim)on the lower portion, then rotate the rim 180 degrees and do another putt. If you hit the bottom, the top should flip outward toward you. Then do a 90 degree turn and give it a similiar smack.If the rim does not seem to move at all, then you are gonna have to hit it from the inside outward. BUT FIRST SHORE UP THE CAR, OVERDO THE BLOCKING,,,JUST MAKE SURE THE CAR DOES NOT COME CRASHING DOWN ONTOP OF YOU.Oil, grease, heat will not work here. You bolted up tight a rim that did not fit on correctly. Make sure that the centre hole is more than big enough. That won't affect the trueness of the wheel, the bolts hold the wheel in the centre. Jobber rims do not fit well. You will be using a grinder.If you have a dead blow hammer you might try tapping the rim to help break it loose. Can you get a pry bar in there to help? Just be careful when you tap the rim, do not dent it. The sharp blow will do more good than just trying to pull it off by hand.

What gear to drive in when towing a trailer with toyota camry

Whatever gear the car needs to have the moter spinning without full throttle.Auto and manual are driven differently.Up hill,downhill.Mostly,if its manual you wait a bit longer to change gears.E.g.Normal change revs,3000 rpm,go to 3500rpm with the trailer on.Auto,use the gear selecter and put it back to 3 instead of D and when the car has enough speed,then into D.Drive the auto like a manual on hills help it.Don't forget that braking distances almost double when you have a trailer on.Hope this helps

Go for a drive,pull up and feel the heat of each wheel rim.If one or all are extremely hot,the brakes may be binding.I would check this as a first step.Hope this helps

What is the maximum size of wheel that i can put on a Golf 97 CL

In theory, you could go up to a 17" rim with an ultra-low profile tire. The stud configuration on the Golf, however, makes it hard to find the larger rims, and the ultra low profile tires are very expensive. Your best bet is to take it in to a tire shop to find out what can be ordered for the vehicle. If you wanted to order sets online, make sure you measure the distance between the studs and the depth of the wheel.
