SOURCE: 02 VW Jetta TDI with ALH engine glow plug

this is a common problem for these cars glow plugs go bad like spark plugs however the smoke would lead to bad mass airflow meter. it is not telling ecu corrcet miss. disconnect mass airflow meter. when cold see if this makes it start better. it should would means you need new m.a.f. glow plug issue take a test light place clamp on positive of battery then pull off glow plug connectors place tip of test light on glow plug the bad one will have a dull light unlike the good one which will be brighter. will need new plugs and wire harness four **** connectors and wire striper and crimper will fix concern good luck

Is this a 92 Jetta like you describe or a 02 Jetta TDI? If it's a 92 Jetta, I can almost guarantee the ignition switch is bad. Common failure. They're cheap, but require special tools and experience to remove.

2012 VW Jetta TDI battery won't hold charge and car only clicks and won't start


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

yes- check your oil level - sounds like they didn't fill completely or something is loose and leaking oil out

Was driving a light in dash board came on and it looks like an engine. went to drive today and got around the corner and car died with lots of black smoke coming out of tail pipe. (VW Jetta)


The check engine light is the light and it sounds like that the coolant temperture senser has come unplugged or is bad. You can get the check engine light ( read) at an auto parts store as it'll tell ou the codes the indicated the problem area that the light is conplaining about a carefull inspection for wires disconnected may find the problem to as the airflow senser can failin wet weather and any connector can get wet or dirty and work poorly.

Turn ignition key but won't start..All power on, is it starter?


Can be a Junk Relay, access is limited, but giving the Starter a "crack" with a mallet, often cures the problem temporarily. But check the Battery terminals, and Cable to the Starter solenoid ,first for tightness and security.

VW Jetta starts, then turns off immediately


try checking the throttle position sensor or the idle control valve both can keep it from running.

2006 vw jetta tdi service engine light reset


With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

2003 VW Jetta TDI Check Engine Light Issue


Try disconnecting the battery (unhook on of the terminals) wait for like 15 mins, hook the terminal once again and start the car. I also own a 2003 Jetta and once my engine light would come on after 2 mins of driving. Disconnecting the battery is like resetting the computer and hopefully the sensor.
