    Our 2003 Jetta will not start when cold. It is a manual transmission so we can drift start it, and engine seems to be fine after it is warmed up.

I give the same answer to everyone with these symptoms. Have your battery checked for specific gravity and load test. When weather starts to get cold this is a common problem. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

sluggish/cold start "problems"with any VW group product can be put down,in a lot of cases,to dirty injector nozzles,use redexe/wynns injector cleaner at 1 can to 1/2 tank fuel and you will feel a difference.as for the oil,VW group,use 10/40 semi synthetic in ALL their engines.(except w12 0/40)using a thin oil would pass the rings/valve guides and cause a carbon buildup inside the chamber......try it and see.....

This problem is very common with MkV VW's. It's related to the heat and evaporator components. It's some sort of flap motor.

How to find a shortage on a vw jetta 2002


If you live where it is cold, your battery may need to be replaced . They will discharge with the cold during the night. Try changing the battery or checking your curent one. Install a known good battery that you know is fully charged, start the car and then turn it off leaving it for the night. If it does not start in the morning then you know it is not the battery. More than likely the alternator or regulator.

'96 VW Golf GL with 2.0 motor. Cold start knock


It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)
