I understand that there are 3 support points for motor and transmission on the VW Jetta 2001 2.8 6cyl.

My car battery never died. I just unplugged my mp3 from the cord attached to a tape that does mp3 player playback, while my car was off and parked in my driveway. The next day when I got in my car the whole stereo would not turn on at all. No error display, nothing. My fuses look like none are blown. What else can I check before I have to give up, and take it to a dealer?

I am trying to remove the PCV (Crankcase Vent Valve) but it won't come out; it spins freely but i cannot pull it upward. Looking at a picture of the valve it doesn't appear to have anything holding it other than a small lip on the end of the tube. I don't want to break it, can anyone offer any advise on removing it?

VW dealership said that when it broke, damage was done, something was bent, resulting in a major 5000.00 repair. How do I know that what they are telling me is the honest truth, and when or if repairs are made that they do what they said and not just kind of fix it. I'm young & female and don't know anything about cars.

When you start it starts then shuts off right away but if you start it and hold the key forward it will stay running...any idea what this may be????

I need it to pass the smog test and my check engine light is on

My reverse lights are not working, I changed the bulbs and fuse, still not working. I am pretty sure it is the reverse light switch but I can't figure out where it is located in the car to replace it. Can you please tell me where I can find it? The car is a manual if that makes a difference. Thanks.

My jetta makes a loud fan sound when car starts and lasts a min. I think it might have to do with cooling. And check engine light remains on

It happened once.

I want to know how the audio system work because I dont hear the rear speakers.

with car started,clutch pushed in car will not go into any gear.With car off, car will go into all gears.

I am not quite sure how to explain this and I may have 2 issues but hopefully it is just one. After driving the car for about 10 minutes and I stop at a light, Press the gas and from 1st to 2nd gears the car kinda "hiccups" jerks - this is an automatic transmission. The check engine light has not come on. Also the same effect happens when braking. It's fine from high gears but once it transmission switches from 2nd to 1st gears it bogs down and jerks a bit. I was told that the master cylinder might need to be replaced. Would this be a symptom?

i went to the store car was running fine turned off car went in store came back out and car wouldnt start towed it home and hooked up the cpu and it said the camshaft position sensor code so where is it located and how do i replace it thank you
