Can anyone solve this engine problem!?

Recommended Posts

Hi my mk2 vr6 has recently started to have a problem. When I change gear and put my foot back down on the accelerator I get a hesitation/lag before the power comes back through. I've been experiencing this when taking the revs higher, when I change gear around 2000rpm it doesn't do it but when it take the revs high and change through the gears I get a power drop/hesitation when I put my foot back down on the accelerator. I've heard a few people having a similar problem but have not found the solution. Someone suggested the coil pack needs changing or the cam shaft sensor. Has anyone experienced this problem. Thanks (mk2 golf 2.8 VR6)

Yeah it's lumpy after I change gear for a second or two before the power comes back through, also when driving steady if I come of the power then put my foot down again sometimes it bogs a bit and drop power for a second

Omg £300....I can’t remember what I paid, but man that’s a lot.

Nice one let’s hope it resolves the issues and she’s running like a dream again .

Hi guys, here's a quick update. 

I took the old Air flow metre off the car (it was pretty f**cked so I guess i needed one either way). Bought a new air flow metre and fitted it. Its made the car sound allot crisper BUT it has not solved my problem if anything its made it even worse, even more laggy and powerless. It pops and bangs like crazy now even sometimes it sounds like the popping is coming from the middle/front of the car. 

 

Back to the drawing board, getting pretty fed up of trying and spending money on the stupid thing! 

 

P. S here's a photo of my car we're talking about.

Guttered....mate

Maybe it’s time to get a pro to look at it.

What condition is the coil pack like?

Did you change all the HT leads?

Yeah I think I need a VR pro. I think the guy who had it at the garage a week a go checked the coil he didn't mention it being f*cked. I changed all the HT leads when I got it back from being converted pretty much straight away, I hope it isn't them.

That's sounds like a misfire.... Gotta be the coil pack mate. Check it for cracks.
