to save on gas only three pistons are needed to start the engine properly I would say you have faulty sparkplug wires and when the engine warms up the fourth will kick in or you have a faulty plug...good luck

This is a common early warning sign of cylinder head gasket failure, especially where the gasket is failing between a waterway and a cylinder bore. Coolant can find its way into the cylinder bore due to the fact the cooling system is pressurised, and this will inhibit formation of a spark until the engine has warmed up sufficiently to drive any moisture from the cylinder.

I don't know, but my 1996 golf just reset to zero tonight as I passed the 300,000km mark.

False. They SHOULD mark and identify it, but there is nothing in the rules that state they MUST do it.

Straight black line on the side of the ball.

Mk1s are übercool, period. Caddies especially so...

the 16v is 150bhp and the 8v 115bhp.

No. Unless it's lift clean and place you cannot mark it in that scenario.
