i got a 2.0 golf..the check engine light was on and the car started to vibrate..so i get scared **** less and turn off the car..i turn it back on and it idles at 15..but then comes back to normal and stopped vibrating...i had a cold air intake and completely forgot to change the air filter..and it was pretty bad..so i thought that was the problem..i took out the cold air and put in the stock filter..but it didn't fix it..so i took it to vw..they ran some tests..and got carbon build up in the engine...running lean..so i engine flush it and change spark plugs..add fuel injection cleaner...and it was fine for a lil bit..and now its back to vibrating and misfiring..and check engine light is on again...any ideas!? i have no idea what to do!

its a 2002 2.0 golf..it has 54000 miles...manual...the engine flush was like a special oil cleaner..i added it to the oil and let it run for a lil bit..then i drained it..its suppose to remove all the carbon build up in the engine..also i noticed yesterday..the car vibrates and misfires only when the car temp is cold..when it warms up..it runs perfect..but the check engine light is still on..what the hell!???
