Volkswagen Jetta QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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?

The front passenger door does not lock, and the interior lock/unlock light on the door does not turn orange like the other 3 doors when they are locked. It seems to work just fine at times, but then suddenly it won't light up or lock. What could be the problem and how much would it cost to fix the problem?
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?
The 2003 is dying, the 2005 needs an AC system. I would like to take the system from the 2003 before I junk it. Will the AC lines line up correctly?

What to expect when I try to repair the timing belt. Belt teeth were stripped near crankshaft -top of belt was good. What are some of the common problems mechanics have setting time and replacing belt. Time tdi is way off and not sure where to start and in what order to do it n. Replace tensioner also? Funds are low. Remove motor mount ? I seen on a video. What do I have to do with the computer after repairing belt? I also replaced the crankshaft,camshaft sensors. Reset or program something. Had to Touch terminals together to get car to start after crankshaft sensor replacement. Thanks. Any & all info will be greatly appreciated.
someone is selling they said everything is good condition but it just stop working
I have a 99 Jetta with a 2.0 engine. I recently had a new clutch installed, but now my car doesn't shift correctly. It shifts amazing when the car isn't running (regardless if I press the clutch in). When I shift it into first (while its off) then turn the car on, it lurches forwar a little bit. After the car is on and I stop I cant shift into first at all. Its hard to shift into all the gears and it'll grind if I push too hard. The clutch engages almost immediately after I start to release my foot. While its in gear and its running (when I don't have to shift) it drives good. As I shift into a different gear it feels chunky and it takes at least 5 seconds to shift into a different gear.
My oil light won't go off after filling it with oil. I'm a car dummy.

If anyone has any pictures that would be helpful also.
If I leave my car for more than 24-48 hours, my battery completely dies. I have to take it somewhere that has a battery charger to get it working again. Why is my car draining my battery this bad? How do I fix it?
One day when I tried to shift into reverse, I heard a weird noise and my reverse no longer worked. That was a week ago, and it hasn't started working yet. What do I do?
This is similar to my previous question about electrical issues with the car. At random times, with the AC on full blast, I will notice a burning smell from the vents. It will go away after a while, but honestly I'm worried the car may explode on me.
I'm assuming this is an electrical issue. About a year ago, my windows began rolling up and down on their own. This includes the sunroof which will open at random times. The radio and lights work fine, and I can easily roll the windows back up if they open on their own.
Why does a 2005 Jetta GLI Automatic transmission Jerks when shifting fro first to second?

The car will not shift out of park
Shop found too much voltage from horns. Replaced fuse, repair horn wiring & terminals, replace relay, R&I both horns and replace. 6 weeks later, horn not working. Returned it to shop & they repaired it again. Month later, horn not working.
Horn stopped working. Had it repaired. Horn failed again 6 weeks later. Repaired again. Month later, horn not working.
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?
1. Currently having leaks of coolant popping up continuously everywhere it seems. going on for about 3 months.
2. Engine makes a ticking sound and becoming more progressive with time.
3. starting to smell gas in oil. immediately after I changed it.
4. Malfunction light- exhaust temperature sensor is a problem. Could this alone be the cause for the rest?
5. Had radiator replaced 3-5 months ago.
6. Temperature sensor use to be an ongoing issue and have had thermostat "stuck". Need to check still.
7. Keep noticing that my coolant reserve cap keeps coming loose. seems to shut Ok though.
8. Had the "engine block only" replaced 1.5 years ago with used block from junk yard. Problem caused by a lack of oil. Had oil change one month prior though and had checked it days before engine failed. (deal seemed shady and oil changed by the same guy who "replaced" the engine).
There was no compression in the engine. I saw this done myself but I would have believed whatever he showed at the time.
Rough idle, car engine burns hot but thermo-gauge doesn't show this.
I had used those STOP LEAK pellets for the coolant at one time, before radiator was replaced.
Jetta, 1.8 turbo, 6 speed manual transmission, having trouble pushing shifter into 1st gear, balance gears are ok and smooth. No issues in pick up and driving, only annoying during traffic time, and I have to lift up in 2nd gear because I'm unable to push into 1st gear. Sometimes reverse gives issues, but not that as bad as 1st. 1st gear sometimes can work, but I have shift really fast and sometimes, very seldom it will allow me to shift in 1st, any advise would be very much appreciated, thanks!
Motor shut down probably by the oil pressure switch. Drained oil, replaced oil pan and refilled. Motor cranks but won't start. Was told to replace the pressure switch but still only cranks. No code read on my OBD II reader.
Sometimes when it sits a while it will start back up again and sometimes it may take a day. This happens randomly
