Answer to: My VW Golf Hard start, how do I resolve this problem?I had a similar problem with my 2001 VW Golf 1.8 turbo. A mechanic advised me that the speed or crank shaft sensor may be bad. It’s the one right behind the oil filter. I changed it myself and that fixed the problem. Good luck. Henry
Answer to: My VW Golf Hard start, how do I resolve this problem?My sons Golf was hard to start when it was hot. I was told it's the speed sensor. I purchased one and replaced it. It's located right behind the oil filter so you must remove oil and filter first. There are two bolts that hold it in place, you can't see them, but you can feel them. It wasn't that difficult to replace. Now the car starts everytime. It doesn't stall out either.
