Problematic High-Pressure Fuel Pump
The fuel pump sends high-pressure fuel to the fuel injection to be metered to the engine’s combustion chamber. If you hear an engine rattle, then the engine quits; this component is the likely suspect. Even if you get the car restarted, it is likely to quit again, stranding you. Have your Golf towed to our shop. We will cost-effectively replace this problematic fuel pump to ensure trouble-free driving.
A persistent engine misfiring is probably your ignition coil packs going bad. If you have a late-model Golf, you have a coil pack for each spark plug. They don’t all go bad at once, which is why your engine still runs. We will suggest replacing them all at once to forestall the recurrence of this problem.
In Limp Mode
When the Golf computer senses a problem, the limp mode will switch off unneeded functions, such as air conditioning, and speed will be limited. The limp mode lets you safely get the car to a maintenance facility without needing a tow. The problem is not fixed and should not be ignored. Limp mode is usually, but not always, triggered by malfunctioning sensors or defective wiring. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment lets us quickly decide which components to replace to get you on the road safely.
Hard shifting can be internal transmission parts, such as a broken linkage or misadjusted cables. Another possibility is a malfunctioning clutch. Come in for a diagnosis by our expert technicians. We may be able to solve your problem with a fluid change, or it may need components replaced.
If you hear knocking from the front suspension, the suspension bushings need to be replaced. VW designed the bushings to give good ride comfort, but like shock absorbers, they wear out. We will replace the affected parts to provide you with factory-fresh ride comfort.
A Golf with a bad brake booster will require more pressure to give you the braking action you want. It may also be leaking brake fluid. When much of the brake fluid is gone from the system, you will experience brake failure. This is not something to put off. Have your VW towed to our shop to have your brake system fixed.
Overheating ABS Unit
An electrical fault in the ABS control unit of Golfs made between 1997 and 2004 can cause overheating and even start a fire. This condition will trigger the limp home mode and is a good reason not to ignore this warning.
Grinding Sounds from The Rear of the Vehicle
Grinding noises from the rear are caused by failing ball joints. This condition means we have to replace the rear axle. Safety requires this problem to be rectified as soon as possible.
We have expert technicians with years of experience repairing all years of VW Golfs. For an appointment, see our website or call today.
