2001 Volkswagen Jetta Problems
Shifting issues due to internal problems in high mileage automatic transmissions can be difficult to resolve without transmission replacement.
One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.
An ignition coil or spark plug may fail unexpectedly resulting in an engine misfire and possible illumination of the Check Engine Light. Vehicles equipped with spark plug wires may also develop a misfire caused by a failed spark plug wire.
2001 Volkswagen Jetta Questions
I had my motor mounts replaced a few weeks ago and then last weekend my car started making noise under the hood. My mechanic said I need to replace the timing chain. I was wondering if the motor mount replacement and the timing chain failure are related.
How much should the timing chain repair cost. I have a V6. Thanks.

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1999-2002 Jetta and 1998-2002 Beetle models because a brake light switch may malfunction if incorrectly installed during a safety recall. This can cause the brake lights to become inoperative or remain on. Dealers will install the newly designed brake light switch free of charge.
