Engine light and emmisions worshop on dash

You will need to have another code scan done. A faulty glow plug will certainly show up on a scan, but should NOT bring on the engine MIL light. Erase all faults showing at present. This should extinguish the engine light. Thin start and stop engine a number of times until the light comes back on. This will re boot on-board computer. Do another scan and the fault should show up. If possible do a live reading, paying close attention to the (oxygen sensors) lambda units
Best of luck

Emissions Workshop on display

I had this problem myself and was told it could be one of 3 things

1. ignition coils are on their last legs and would need replacing (there are 4 of them in a VW golf)

2. The throttle housing is knackered and needs replacing as it has caused the motor that powers the accelerator to stop working and

3. The catalytic converter has an excess of carbon stored within it and has caused a defect.

All 3 of these jobs are notoriously expensive. Much to the delight of whoever it is you have gone to see....
