VW GOLF MK3 GTI 8v starting problems


My mk3 1996 16v 2ltr was playing up, wouldnt start when cold, wouldnt rev above 4500-5000. I changed the ignition switch, ecu relay, petrol pump relay, plugs,plug leads, coil, and finally, checked the hall sender on the dizzy, and found a broken wire in the dizzy body. Got a 2nd hand dizzy from a breakers for 40 quid, (150 or more new) and all is well. (I actually took the car to two garages and they couldnt find the problems, no faults registered on vagcom).

My car idles at 2k rpm as soon as the check engine light goes off


Most likely airflow meter giving trouble. Remove it and try cleaning it you will get spray for this in an auto factor's or an electrical repair shop. Cleaning may not fix it as it may just be worn out and will need to be replaced. A genuine V.W. one is expencive but enquire at your auto factors they will be able to get you one at about half the price. Hope this helps. Cheers

Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out


Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck

Oil pressure light


Oil pump broken, or oil sensor on control panel faulty. First option more likely, contact a mechanic and have oil pump checked, do not use the car, as you can damage the engine.
