1999 Volkswagen GTI Owner Comments

problem #1

May 122007

(reported on)

GTI VR6 2.8L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 60,000 miles

I have had two GTI VR6's (a '95 and a '99) and it happened right at the same mileage (around 60k). In this report my '99 GTI VR6 � I had just come out from the store and the engine just didn�t sound right. It was not firing on all cylinders. In my previous car ( �95 GTI VR6) the same thing happened so I knew what it was. The ignition coil had split. Just to make sure I threw a small cup of water on it and could see the electric arc across the crack.
