Check engine light

Asked by Apr 12, 2018 at 10:23 PM about the 1999 Volkswagen Golf

Question type: General

I just started working on my girlfriend's car she had
the check engine light on I scanned it 11 codes
came up as a rule of thumb process of elimination
I cleared the codes because she had computer
issues in the past and they never cleared the check
engine light figured this would give me a clean
slate to figure out what all is wrong with the car
what worried me was as soon as I cleared the
codes the car started idling horrible
instantaneously as soon as the light went off then
after about three to five minutes it started running
normal has anybody ever experienced this problem
and if so what the heck caused it scared the
bejesus out of me
