How did i know you were going to reply to this

I love 85 Golf... but the motor and its random bucking and chugging it does really pisses me off. Its getting better so i'm getting closer to having it figured out.

16v's are reliable
usually it's the fuel injection that gives you problems

My 16v engine was exceptionally reliable... the transmission was another story.

Sounds like you need to do a little tuning and tweeking, should be a great little engine
now a G60 on the other hand....

I have a 16v, never really had any problems with it so far. I got a little tranny problems. Other small problems keep creeping up as well. The love-hate relationship is pretty much what it is all about though.
