Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

Blinking engine light

Today I went over a huge dip in the road and the bottom of my 2003 Jetta GLX scraped. Shortly afterwards the engine light came on and started blinking. Now the car "shakes" for lack of a better word when at a stop light, and even when driving a little bit. What could this be?

Check your coolant level and condition. If you havent' replaced the coolant in a while then change it. You can drain it from the bottom of the radiator plug. You may also want to change your oil and oil fiter.

Jetta GLX 1998 (old body), when it rains heavy, car run rough


Sounds like you need new wires and or cap and rotor, had the same problem on my jetta 1.8L when I would drive it in heavy rain it would bog down and misfire. The water blows threw the rad right onto your distributor and wires causing the short (old and cracked or just defective). Try it out I'm sure that will fix it.

Oil light blinks on my 2004 vw jetta


has the dealer hooked up a mechanical test guage to see if the oil pressure is really low? If it is low make them fix it, low oil pressure will destroy the engine in a very short time. Low oil pressure is caused by either worn engine bearings or a defective oil pump.

You may have a bad coil pack - try moving two of them around and see if the misfire follows the coil pack or stays at the same cylinder. If it follows the coil pack, get a new one. If it stays in the same cylinder, inspect your spark plug wires and make sure the plug is gapped correctly.
