comment Is Start & Stop technology good or bad for my car? (Alfa MiTO)
@BrianKnoblauch, in that regard I argue that it is the cold start that is most damaging. Once the motor is at proper operating temperature, the oil is at high lubricity and circulated throughout, so the warm start is much easier on the engine. As a circumstantial evidence, many commercial fleets (I worked for national food disributor, seen how they do it) are also more concerned with cutting idling rather than wear and tear. At the same time, reliability still matters, so I suppose they weighed pros and cons.

The video states in the beginning it is 2000 (first year of that Mk. IV generation, same as OP), just different engine (TDI).

comment Carburetted motorcycle stalls when accelerator is applied
So, turned out that the spark plug wire on one of the cylinders unsettled. They are hard to get to, because they are not to the side, as is on most bikes, but hidden deep inside, directly from the top, and to access them one has to take off and drain the fuel tank. Should I post that as an answer, or what do I do?

Do we not have a duplicate for a generic question like this? I’ve seen many, but did not know which one would the better to pick for a duplicate vote.
