    2001 golf v5 (170) serious engine missfire😡🤬

    Hi im new to the forum and any help would be greatly apreciated. My 2001 Golf 2.3 V5 170PS has been missfiring now for a month or two, its now at the stage where i have to put full throttle on to start it, and when it does start it missfires badly (sounds like a channook). It tries to cut out every time it idles!! I did error code it and came up cam sensor bank 1 running too advanced so bought 2 new cam sensors (bosh) and installed them and no noticable difference. What else could it be??? Also too add when lights are on they flicker and eventually die along with whole car!? Working on a tight budget. Please help as im forced too use the thing every day for work and cant rely on it. Also have a loud squeeling from engine somewhere under any revs.....again any help greatly apreciated����

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    All that points to a dead battery with the squealing being the over stressed alternator slipping on the belt due to the extreme load. The odd thing about modern starters is they will crank over and start on a voltage too low for the engine to run.

    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.

    Could be a whole lot of things. If you can't get the engine scanned try a visual examination of all the wiring to the spark plugs and injectors. If you have tools, take the plugs out and give them a clean. Check for air leaks, fluid leaks and bits hanging off. We are always keen to help, you just need to give us a bit more information. Good luck.
