    VW Golf GTI 2001 (51 plate) Spark plug removal HELP!!!!


    If anyone could help me or point me in the direction of a video to help me get at these spark plugs it would be much appreciated. My golf is mis firing and not sparking properly i can get to two of the plugs but i have no idea how to get to the two that aren't exposed. It currently feel like the car is being starved of something while driving it, until it warms up it can be very jerky

    That is a 2002 model with the very rare AZJ engine and it is probaly a personal import as that is usually when you see this odd ball engine and usually the type number is 1J1 6J4. This engine is the only one that uses a special coil pack, 06A 905 097 A and these often cause trouble.

    Unfortunaltely I have had a lot of problems using non genuine versions as they always generate a fault code so I only use genuine VW units on these which are 151.13. Ohh yes, the plugs, even better news, you have to remove the inlet manifold on this particular engine, the other 2L versions are very awkward to do on plugs 2 and 3 but on the AZJ it's impossible.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
