There is some moisture in the oil cup of my VW Jetta 98


Change the oil. Car that don't go on long drives usually get moister in the oil from heating up and cooling allot if you drove long drives the oil would burn off the moister.In town driving car should have there oil changed more frequent then car that drive long trips.

98 VW jetta: key wont turn in hole


Get some graphite or lock oil and put it into the ignition.This should help alot,Also if you try to turn the steering wheel while turning the key it will releave the pressure on the wheel lock and this helps as well (when the wheel is locked, you should only be able to move it a little bit in one direction)
