Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta

Intermitent trouble starting 2001 jetta

My 2001 plain jane, automatic, jetta has had trouble starting. The engine doesnt turn over at first, I never give it gas while starting the car. When it finally sputters on the engine will rev up for the first mile or so. Plus when the car finally DOES turn on the whole inside of the car smells like gas. It did this once a month or so ago...its doing this more often over the past 2 weeks.
Thank you.

My brother has one of these and his mechanic tried the quick fix for $1,000. Lasted 2 weeks. He wanted nearly $4000 more for rebuilt unit installed, so brother sold him the car cheap. (reliable mechanic for last 13 years and 6 cars.) How many miles on yours?

Bmw x5 2001 the car doesnt pick up speed when put in gear and doesnt always go into gear there is a delay when put reverse I follow manual intructions turn off the engine and wait a few minutes then...


Read the trouble codes for your automatic transmission using a scan tool. I like the wireless ELM327 OBD2 adapter and OBD Fusion app.
The trouble codes will tell you why the transmissiion is putting the car in limp mode.

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.

I have a 2001 Jetta diesel. There is a yellow engine light on and the car doesnt have any power. I dont hear any Tubro whistle What sensor could it be, or could it be the exhaust plugged


You will need to have the car checked with diagnostis code reader. It is unlightly that the problem is in the exhaust system. It sounds more like air mass or air flow metre trouble...but you would need to check codes to be 100% sure
Good luck ...John

2001 Jetta 1.8T, 100K miles. Smokes when hot.


Ouch! you've got engine coolant in the exhaust from a leak somewhere...DO NOT run this engine until you get someone (dealer is best in this instance) to diagnose ($50-125)

2001 Jetta TDI Transmission not shifting


the transmission works properly after restarting so mechanically the transmission is fine
Run the fault codes to determine the problem area ( TR, TCM, VSS ,solenoids and servos) check for wiring harness problems and water in the connections
