    I have a 2007 VW Golf City with the 2.0 engine (MK4 Style) and for the last little while my car has very rarely started on the first crank after sitting for >2 hours. It does, however, start every single time on the second crank without fail and the startup and idle is very healthy. So that's my...

  4. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi! I'm new here, but I just wanted to make a thread about my Jetta and how far I've come since I bought it. I'm not exactly sure what I'm turning it into but I just wanted to document it for myself, but also for anyone else. Mk4's have a ton of 'quirks,' so if yours has some of the same...

    I’ve done tons of research on this subject in a few forums and haven’t gotten anywhere. I recently bought a mk4 Golf with a 2.0 that wouldn’t stay running. I found it was out of timing by 4 teeth and the crank pos sensor had a frayed wire. I repaired the timing and that wire and test drove which...

    I recently destroyed my 2.0 and was looking into swaps. I want to do something that doesn’t get done a lot. Is it possible to swap a b series out of a Honda into the mk4 golf? If so how difficult, how much fab work would I need to have done, do they make customs mounts for the engine etc.

    Hey guys just looking to tune my vw a bit, and was just wondering how much power the stock drivetrain can handle before things turn into pieces. Halfshafts, transmission, I know clutches can vary but I've just got a Luk OEM clutch kit, anything else I'm missing? I've got a 2.0 and yes I'm aware...

    Hello. I was just pulled over tonight for my reverse lights being on in drive. I got a notice and have to go to the police station and show the problem is fixed in 60 days. After a bit of testing I found that the reverse lights turn on after a second delay after shifting into drive, 3rd, or 2nd...

Was driving one day, parked, turned off the car and got out for 5 or so minutes, and when I returned, the engine would not start. Upon further inspection, the engine was not getting fuel...
