This is my '03 Golf and is as you can see a two door. It has a five speed manual transmission. It has 111,972 miles on it at time of this photo. It needs a timing belt change bad! I know that it is recommended to be changed at 100k. The previous owner didn't show it a lot of love it seems. I plan to give it some TLC and get it in top notch shape. I am not well versed in the maintenance/repair of these cars but I have always been fairly mechanically skilled and am willing to learn. I would like to get to know my car in and out, know every nut, bolt and how to keep it happy. I appreciate any feedback, advice, help, suggestions, statements, GTG invitations and teaching. I know I'm in the right place here at the tdiclub, and my Golf thanks you in advance.
P.S. When I got it the previous owner said that the engine light had come on and they took it to their mech. who replaced a GP and the light went off. It came back on again and they took it back and he replaced another. The light had gone off but has since come back on intermittently. The last owner said their mechanic told them that if the engine light came back on soon that it was probably the Glow Plug Harness. I have no idea if that is the problem or if its something else. I will probably end up getting VAG COM at some point so I can diagnose these issues myself. What are some issues that can throw a engine code?
