2.0 engine back fires then dies
ok so my transmission seems to be engaging and disengaging when cold and on start off if im not careful when i accelerate from a stop it will all of a sudden slam into gear and go / this sounds strange but after i get moving it feels ok and the issue seems to be when its cold
I had an issue with the balance shaft in my 2009tsi VW Jetta Wolfsburg, it broke! I'm in the process of replacing it, on the water pump side behind the gear there is an oil seal. What's the proper name of this seal and where can I find one? Thank you
i've set the timing, but when I rotate 1 full turn they no longer line up
I am able to steer the car, however, when turning the wheel it makes a hissing sound. When I add power steer fluid, it literally running straight thru.
What does the "2-3" mean? And how to change?
The first two refer to O2 heater circuits and the last three refer to throttle/pedal position sensor switch E, D and B respectively. The gas pedal does nothing but the car idles at about 1k. something caught some wires under the car that go to a sensor in front of and behind the catalytic converter and tie into a harness that goes up into the engine compartment and disappear into the firewall. I checked for continuity which appears good. Had to repair 1 broken wire but no change in the pedal.
I amcontemplating purchasing a used 2008 vw jetta or used 2007 nissan sentra could you please tell me which one will be better for reliabliity and cheaper to repair. Thank you sooo much
Lights stays on and occasionally goes off but, concerned due to up coming trip.
Tried to start my car to go to work like I do every day. However, all I get is a clicking sound and then the dash board lights illuminate. Traction Control light illuminated, TPMS blinking then solid, and a yellow steering wheel symbol. This is the first time this has happened. I also randomly get a blinker light stuck on when I don't even touch the switch. Help!

while replacing the shock strut,wheel hub,entire wheel knuckle on the front driver's side the axle slid out of its boot entirely.I've removed the bolts but i cannot remove the end of the axle.I've tapped it/hit with a hammer and pulled on it at different angles..still not budging.is the left axle attached in some way other than the 6 bolts?
also the replacement axle is for an automatic. could i use it anyway? they seem to be the same length and bolt pattern.
Emergency brake is off brake pads are good. Not sure if e brake and EPC are related in anyway to each other.
Having problem with water inside drivers side floor and passenger floor and trunk probably from sunroof...was reading your website and I saw a post stating that there was a recall for this same problem but when I called dealership to get this problem fixed, they said there was not a recall for this.This answer appeared on a May 2010 post. My question is asking was there a recall or not?
I just bought my 2000 jetta and the person I bought it from told me he just had the automatic transmission rebuilt and now when I put the car in R,D,3,2&1 it sounds like a grinding noise & the car doesn't move. But the transmission sounds like it's spinning trying to go into gear, Could it be both axles?
It would stay started but when you push the gas it would not idel up the lights would come on but the dash and radio went completely out when jumper cables are hooked up. Everything goes back to normal for a few seconds
Car cranks normally but will not catch and turn over. Just installed new stereo minutes ago and car performed perfectly b4 that. I am suspecting a fuse or relay but have no idea what a relay is and don't even begin. To know which fuse to pull. Please help. Pp a is the wife's car so I'm n deep Doo Doo 911 help!!!!

Ii had someone change my stero and when i went to deive it wouldnt shift from park to any other grar and all my light on my dash are light up. I put it on reader and it gave me code u0101 any ideas
When driving at night and turning on my headlights, the brake lights illuminate and stay on which is shortly followed by the EPC light and temporary "limp mode", but letting off the gas and then resuming stops the limp mode. This happens everytime I turn my headlights on as of late. Additionally, while day time driving, the headlights come on when I press the brake. Should I just replace the computer and then trouble shoot as I have already done the brake light switch twice, replaced bulbs (VW recommendation), and battery recently.
Unfortunately my boyfriend was bored at work a few days ago and told me he took some STUFF under the hood apart to blow the engine clean and it has been fine but 2 days later it's turning over but won't start.. Now he's saying it's the timing belt..Jeez,,,Any body have any idea if he's right or should I check a few other things first
PRNDL readout on dash shows all gears selected. Have replaced Neutral Safety Switch and Speed Sensor. Car is still over-revving before finding the next gear and is occasionally downshifting to neutral or a lower gear on its own.
Am told this car has a 'range switch' on the transmission located somewhere under the battery tray on tranny. I cannot find it.
If you could simply tell me where it's located and what it looks like that would make my millennium. I cannot seem to find a definitive answer on this one. Thanks
fuse pantel dose not say which fuse is for accessories have checked them all out with a tester they all work what's nex t
Throwing codes p0608 and p0121
TB will not adapt. Reads error on vagcom. ECP light stays on. ABS light on since i purchased car a year ago. Check engine on light intermittently.
While driving the car stalls but still drives then the esp light comes on and after a few seconds the car cuts out and when I restart the car goes into limb mode
Im just trying to see if i have the tools to do it. I also would like to know how long it should take.and if it is a Feasible fix at home job
He set the cables up backwards when he jumped it. The battery isn't fried and niether are any fuses. Why won't it start or even attempt to putter? All lights turn on and same with fans. The radio wont tho. Someone said it may be the computer? My friend said my car should have a safety on it so nothing gets hurt when stuff like that happens? any help? costs? diagnosis?
went to change my headlight lowbeam and the mechanic at the store said it was the wires not the light and he could not fix it that i would have to go to the dealer or where i bought the car.
Usually after driving for about 30'minutes or so I will start to feel my car rattle. It only happens at higher speeds and when I'm accelerating. As soon as I step off the gas it stops rattling. If I use cruise cromtol it constantly rattles until turned off. It's only got 124k on it. Fresh oil change. Any idea why?
