Our golf gti 2.0 2001 starts up fine,gets warm and cuts out and wont restart. No warning lights on dashboard. Any ideas please.
Why is it only mk4 VW owners that show up on this forum in this manner?
2009 BMW 135i M-Sport : Alpine White/Coral Red : N54 : 6-Speed Manual
2006 Audi A3 2.0T DSG - SOLD
Take it to a f**king mechanic.
This forum is full of bullsh!t.

unplug the MAF sensor, see if it runs. if it does, you need a new MAF sensor. Known problem on those cars.
And ignore all the *******s. As one example, Mellberg is a loser who thinks hes cool because he drive a POS 80s VW. The rest aren't any better.
how come a transvestite donkey witch is next to you and why is it wearing a dress?
Say 'what' again. Say 'what' again, I dare you, I double dare you mother****er, say what one more goddamn time!
For other "car enthusiasts" on this forum, some people actually don't mind working on their cars. I know it's hard to understand for you armchair racers, internet experts.
As for OP,
Check the mk3 section and 2.0 section in "technical forum".
"Your pants too tight,your wheels too bright"
Why people hat on Volkswagens? I don't know honestly, but my best guess is they're bored or ran out of clouds to yell at. It's the same people who write articles in the last page of the newspaper complaining about their neighbour's cat, or the population of squirrels being too high.
Or not answer at all.

But yes, unplug the MAF while the car is running, and if it doesnt change then there is your issue, or at least part of the problem. You can even clean the sensor in a bag of alcohol if needed, and save you some money. They usually just get stuff gunked up on them, happened to the 2001 I owned, and cleaning it fixed the issue.
I see these come in with the same problem every so often. It could be the ignition control module. On these motors you can buy the module and coil as one assembly from your local auto parts store.
Check the date of manufacture, there is a cutoff at 09/2000.
