2005 volkswagen jetta started sputtering, turned engine off then tried to turn back on. took maybe 5 times for it to finally start but still sputtering, any ideas???


Sounds like you could have a bad spark plug. Have you had it near water or rained on, if so you need to let the spark plug wires dry out and apply Di-Electric grease to the inside boot of the plug plus any ignition wires. This keeps moisture out to prevent car not starting.

These are coil packs,the most likely problem will be the crank sensor,or the cam sensor,these are what trigger the pulse for spark,and injector pulse.

I want to do my car over, check all the parts, too


Try the coil packs first as that is what generates the spark. Then spark plug wires of course and new plugs. New cap and rotor also as that is where the spark goes through to tell which plug to fire at a time.

Changed my spark plugs now its clicking


The dielectric grease simply makes the plug wire slide on the spark plug more smoothly (creating a better connection) and helps remove it later without destroying it. Wires should snap down and you may be hearing the arcing coming from one of the wires. If 'ticking' is the sound try looking at the wires closely while running in the dark. You may visually see the spark and you answer. Spark plugs are usually hand torqued but a torque wrench is never a bad idea.

If still no luck then I would suggest switching out plugs & / or wires with you old set to see if the problem disappears.

Spark plug wiring diagram


I dont understand why you would need that unless you took off all the wires and took out all the plugs and forgot how the wires were.I have the same truck and I always do the plugs and wires one at time to make sure I make a mistake.If this is your ploblem let me know because i might be able to walk you though it.
