It lurches slightly in second gear, too. After the engine has run for a while, the lurching stops. This just started yesterday, Oct 15. I let out the clutch very slowly when I start out, but it lurches as soon as I release it. Is this a sign of the clutch failing?

My oil light won't go off after filling it with oil. I'm a car dummy.

The only way to put it in drive is to stick your finger in the gear shift hole and pull on something. I don't know what I'm touching or the name of it. I just know it unlock the gear.

The car act like it wants to crank but it won't. Does this problem have anything to do with a recall and how can it be fixed?

Should I delete the whole P.C.V system intirely. If so I still need to hook the break booster vaccume somewhere so that it could still do its job, in assuming breaks are important so deleting that's not a question. feel free to chime in any time.... another route would be to go with the 1 piece silicone kit witch will do away with all the cheep hoses and clamp from the o,e,m VW ones they use. I do understand what the pcv valve does and as well as the suction jet pump is there and honestly I don't see a reason te run a check valve.
So the point is nobody but old school VW and audi mechanics seem to be the ones who wanna push the whole use o.e.m v.w expensive parts. if its there its there for a reason stuff I get that but this is not one of them. But I wanna hear an actual discussion on the issue. the purpose of running one and then the benefits and of the reasons why some of us don't run them. If I went big turbo and aggressive tune maybe that would change the theory. But as of right now I do not know the answer these guys I joined this group today see how fast this page can get answers out there

So yesterday I changed one of my low beams on my 02' Jetta 1.8T. I thought everything went well because when I flipped the switch, the bulb I changed was working. However, I didn't notice till it got dark that those were the only two bulbs doing anything at the time. I'm pretty sure all my lights work. They all turn on but just not when they're supposed to. The running lights work all the way up till I flip the switch to turn my tail lights on. Then all I get is two shitty bulbs that I'm pretty sure are used for the turn signals up front. If I push in the switch and turn it like I was going to remove it, I can get head lights and dash lights. But still no tail lights!! Unless I flip it all the way, in which case, ill have no headlights! I checked all the fuses, even on top of the battery. I pulled the switch out everything looks brand new, but I'm no expert. I followed all the wires from my lights to make sure there was nothing loose or melted. I don't know what else to do, except pay someone else to do it. I really would rather not do that if it's something I can do.

drove 200 miles

The car just starting making a loud ticking noise so I checked the oil and water but both are good but the ticking is getting worse and the oil light continues to flash what could be causing this could it be that the gaskets are over working or something more serious

miss fire check vac no lieak

Brake fluid is full. What could be the problem?

Previous owner turned car into stationary object; very minimal body damage, but airbag deployed on that front pass. seat only.
Can I replace this or is there more to it than changing parts? Oh and the airbag light is 'On' too. Is it resetable? Rest of car is immaculate and has been well maintained.
