  1. Is it the MAF?

    Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone can help me. I don't have a massive amount of knowledge about cars so you'll have to forgive me. I've got a MK 4 1.8 GTI S reg, the old girls done 126K bought it as my first car 6 months ago. On several occassions at low revs in 2nd the car stalls and won't start unless left for 20-30 seconds. On one of these occassions I started the car and tried to rev and there was absolutely nothing foot to the floor.... all of a sudden it burst in to life and was fine again. It's only happens in 2nd gear, although I believe linked sometimes it feels strangled in any gear and then just bursts back to normal. Acceleration sometimes feels limited A friends suggested it might be a sensor on the Mass airflow meter? And I should unplug this Does anybody have a suggestions? Cheers
  2. High mileage on a golf?

    Hi guys, I've got a mark 4 Golf 1.8 GTI, its done 125K and seems to Rev high in 5th. Basically at 80MPH its reving at 4000 and by a tonne its knocking on for 5000. Other than this it runs nicely does anyone have any idea what might be wrong with it? Or is this just because its 10 years old>? Also I was thinking about getting it chipped is this worth doing or will it kill off an old enginer?
