Oil gushing out

I have a 98 volkswagen jetta glx 2.8 and i was warming up my car and all of my oil was on the ground. I put a quart in and turned it on and i hear it gushing out from the front bottom of my block some where. there is a silver triangle kinda piece with a black rubber thing connected to it and behind that or on top of that is where the oil seems to be gushing out. can you possibly tell me whats going on and how do i fix that. thank you.

I have a 2000 Ford Focus, the low oil indicator light was fluttering. When the car was turned off oil was gushing out. Put a quart in and it leaked out. Do I need a oil pump.

you need to fix the leak
unfortunately you never mentioned where the oil was gushing out from so there are only 2 or three places possible
the oil sender unit
the oil sensor unit
the oil filter
as the first two will drip rather than gush out the filter is left
they can split around the top rim or when being fitted the oil oil seal was left in place and it pushes out under pressure or the filter was overtightened , deforming where the oils eal is
I suspect that the filter area is the problem and if so the fitment of a suitable filter will fix the fault

The fuel filter is under the right rear of the car near the fuel tank. If you face the car from the rear it is on the right side by the rear tire and the fuel tank. Easy to spot.

I have a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLX. When I start my car and put it in reverse, the car shakes and shuts off. A battry light comes on. When I put it in neutral, the car is fine. My car also shakes once in a...

Have someone diagnose the transmission. Sounds like the torque converter locking up when it shouldn't and not when it should. It can, of course, be from other problems, like low/contaminated fluid. The battery light coming on when it stalls is normal(as well as the oil warning light).

Rear tail and brake lights out 97 Jetta

I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.

I need to know how to put gear oil in a 95 jetta.if you have pictures how to do that.

Jack up the car on the driver side. Then you need to take off the Driver side Tire. You will see a 17 hex Allen socket on the transmission; this is where the gear oil goes. On the bottom of the transmission is another 17 hex socket: this is how you drain the transmission fluid. The car takes (75w90 GL-4). I believe the capacity is about 2.0 quarts. But put in about 1.5 quarts first, to see how the car feels, and then add more later.

cold winters? 5W-30, moderate winters 10W-30W, any brand is ok, they all meet the manufacturers specs these days. about 4.0 quarts nd then recheck level hot. as far as cost about $2-3 per quart, if U want to use synthetic ( much extended engine life) then $5 per quart.

Changed oil in 05 vw jetta and exhaust light came on.

Hi Dohn. The save levelto fill you oil is 3/4 from empty on your dip stick. This gives the engine space to breath. What has most likely happened here is, the engine has had too much oil and is trying to find a way out which will end up on your drive or through yor exhaust.
