1) Either your cable is frayed inside the cable sheath. (inexpensive, oil the new cable and sheath on replacement)

2)Or the clutch "push-rod" is wearing through the plate and in a short while will fail and need a new clutch. (expensive)

What is the tire pressure for a golf gti 2.0L?

Check blackwall. Should be around 32 psi if you are using the stock package that came with the car. Now if you are trying to alter the grip of your tire then 32 psi is what the manufacture recommends for that original equipment wheel and tire package only. Briefly, if you have aftermarket rims and tires then you have changed their equation and 32 psi is just a base standard to simply keep your tires stiff. Auto-Crosser, Drifters and Drag Racers change their tire pressure to suit there purposes and I myself never run as low as 32 psi on the street or otherwise.

Where is the obd II pod in golf gti mk4?

It's on the lower dash/console about mid way between the steering wheel and the pedals. Look around the leg area on the lower dash about where your shins are when you're driving. Go low and look up. You can't miss the multi-pin plug built right into the dash.

Why does your golf MK2 1.8 8v idle goes up and down why it gets warm you put in a new idle contol valve and its still doing it?

ISVs are normally very reliable units and not usually the cause of erratic idling.

Vacuum leaks are a frequent cause of idle troubles. Trace the vacuum lines that run from the throttle body and check all connecting pieces are in good order as well as the vac pipes themselves. Also check the short rubber connector between the camshaft cover and the plastic 'drum' above it - leaks here will prevent the engine from idling correctly.

Check the connection to the throttle position switches on the throttle body. The lower switch senses the 'throttle closed' position and engages the ISV.

If there are any doubts about the fuel mixture then get the car tested/adjusted for emissions.

Disconnect the ISV when the car is hot and see if there is any difference to the idle speed. Ideally there should be little or no difference if the idle speed screw on the throttle body has been correctly set for 950 rpm. If there is a large difference (and everything else has been checked) then leave the ISV disconnected and turn the idle screw until the rev counter is as near to 950 rpm as possible. Finally reconnect the ISV.

Where to locate the thermostat in an 1985 VW golf?

The thermostat is located at the bottom of the water pump. Follow the lower radiator hose to the water pump and you will see it connects to the water pump outlet (molded plastic/cast alloy depending on year). The outlet is secured by two 10mm bolts. The thermostat sits inside the outlet. Have a fresh O-ring handy in case the old one is perished (a decent thermostat kit should come with O-rings).

Metal and Alloys

Will golf mk4 alloys fit a mk3 golf?

yes as long as they are the same stud fitment.

The mk4 golf is 5x100 bolt pattern and the mk3 golf is 4x100. unless it's a vr6 model which has the 5x100 bolt pattern so in general the mk4 wheels will not fit a mk 3.

Your golf gti oil pressure light keeps coming on saying stop engine check oil pressure but no oil is needed?

Due to the possible seriousness of low oil pressure, I suggest you (asap)check the actual oil pressure using a oil pressure gauge and compare the result with manufacturers/workshop manual specification.

I believe its possible to unscrew the existing oil pressure switch from the main oil gallery/engine and fit a oil pressure gauge (0 to 100psi).

If the oil pressure is at the value (or near it) that the manual states , then the oil pressure switch is faulty and should be replaced

If the oil pressure is low then further investigation is required as to why it is low, could be the oil pump, but also could be other causes.

This happened to my brother's engine this week. He has a 2005 Mark V Golf GTI. The problem is a fault with ALL Mark V engines. There's a gauze filter in the oil pickup pipe going from the bottom of the engine to the oil pump that gets completely blocked up. Even if you're Golf is not showing this fault at present, it may be starving the turbo of oil anyway (if you have one).

Solution: Drain oil from engine (remove bung in sump), before you remove sump, there's 3 bolts that go through the gearbox housing into the sump. Remove these. Remove sump (Allen key). There's no gasket between sump and engine. Rub old sealant off rim. You will be able to see right up into the engine at this point. There is a small pipe going from the oil pump into where the sump was. This pipe is normally sitting in the oil and it sucks up oil from the sump into the oil pump when the engine is started. The pipe is fixed to the oil pump with one Allen-key head screw and a rubber O-ring. Remove this and take off the pipe. The gauze filter is at the end of the pipe. Try and get a replacement from a motor-factor. Alternatively, you can clean it out well using petrol. Clean the sump well with petrol.

Replace all parts in reverse order! The job took about 3 hours to do and the car drives like a rocket now! If you're not confident enough to do all of this yourself get someone you know that's used to working on engines.

BE WARNED - if you continue to drive your car with this fault light coming on you will be shopping for a new engine very soon.

Where do you find the diagnostic port on vw golf tdi mk 4?

It is below the temperature controls/air con or climate control panel in the centre console.

If you look at the bottom egde of the upright part of the centre console, just above the ashtray, you will see a piece of wood grain or alloy trim (depending on your model) about 1/2" high and about 6" long. This covers the OBD diagnostics port.

Remove this by putting your fingers of one hand underneath and simply slide it back out toward you. Job done, To replace, just locate and push back in....simple as that.

The OBD port is to the RHS of the area which has been uncovered, and is usually a dusky shade of pink/light purple.

Hope this helps?

Luggage

Why does the computer say the luggage compartment is open when its closed in a vw golf?

This could be because the pipe for the rear windscreen wash wipe has perished, and leaked. Its location is over the electrics for the boot close sensor.

Check that the floor and headlining in and around the boot is not wet or damp. if it is you have your problem. Not sure how to fix it though.

Hope this helps.
