I just installed a rebuilt fuel injection pump and drove approx 3 miles and the pump is leaking. It doesn’t appear to be coming from the mail shaft seal, the unions or the valve stem. Cannot detect leak at idle. I replaced fuel, fuel filter, and fuel line from filter to pump prior to starting. If the injectors are partially blocked could this cause the problem? Am looking to replace injector tomorrow.

My manual transmission is stuck in 3rd gear pretty sure it’s not a linkage problem. Is it going to require removal to fix. If not what is the fix

After car is running for around 20 mins and when car is revved up over around 2000 rpm the red oil light makes a beep sound and comes on flashing intermittently for a few seconds before going off. Sometimes I have to switch off the car and when I turn it back on the light is off. Usually only comes on if I’m driving for a substantial journey usually over 20 minutes. Oil is at the max on the dipstick too. Cheers.

my 2001 mk4 golf gti has a problem which has baffled a few different mechanics. basically when i go to or over 80mph, afterwards i find that when i slow down to a stop the revs drop very low (on the verge of stalling) and the revs are bouncing around and make it hard, sometimes impossible to pull away; sometimes i’ll have my foot to the floor and there will be no power at all, then after a few seconds it’ll suddenly bounce back up and rev high and i’ll bunny hop away. it sounds like its coughing and spluttering. i’ve found that i can sometimes clear the problem by revving it really high and hard, sometimes sorting the problem straight away othertimes it takes a lot of attempts. any ideas on what could be causing the problem would be greatly appreciated as its getting to the point where its not only embarrassing but dangerous as well.
