SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 03 jetta tdi timing belt broke

The number of miles is not relevant, because in 7 years of driving, obviously it was mostly highway miles and caused little wear.

It only takes about an hour to try just changing the belt. You need to buy a belt anyway. So it is always worth the attempt.
Most VW's have small depressions in the pistons for the valves, to prevent anything serious.

But no, I do not believe the TDI even is an interference fit.
Only the DOHC GTI engine was even close. I do not believe the TDI had a dual cam version, nor was any Jetta dual cam. And it is only with dual cam that the valves hit, because they are on such a hemisherical angle.

Have a 2002 jetta tdi it won't start and makes a sound like its backfiring what could be wrong


High enough mileage (you didn't say) and a lack of having the timing belt changed at recommended intervals in the owners manual. You really should do this, it isn't just a optional suggestion, they really mean they need to be changed. I always tell people "it is easier and cheaper to drive the vehicle in to have the timing belt changed at your scheduled convenience than it is to be stranded and towed in to have it replaced at your extreme inconvenience". Some makes (Nissan in particular) have interference engines where a broken belt often results in valves being open when the still turning crank drives pistons into them, bending or breaking them. If the timing has jumped it could very well backfire as would a valve hanging open.

On a dashbord flashing "oil


STOP the engine immediately !!! There is an oil pump failure of 2.0 TDI engines !
Remove the oil pan and the oil pump & balancer shafts assembly.

Either the shaft driving the pump from the balance shaft rounds off or the balance shaft drive gears eat themselves.
The same issue ... low oil pressure warning light, noisy rattling engine, and the turbo has gone. Diagnosis: oil pump balancer shaft assembly ...

Many 2.0 TDI engines show excess chain noise and wear anywhere from 50,000-100,000+ miles. Cars have broken the chains/tensioner as low as 65,000 miles. This is just a range of cars that have been reported, diagnosed, and repaired. The actual statistics on dealer repairs or failures is unknown and I've heard cars over 100,000 miles that, in my opinion as a non mechanic (most mechanics wouldn't recognize this sound and problem either), aren't noisy. From what has been reported, noticeable noise/chain-tensioner wear/greater risk of breaking is around 60,000-150,000 miles. Your case may vary. The most obvious symptom is a rattling loose noise from the oil pan. Unless you listen to a Passat TDI with a tight chain and one with a loose chain, it's hard to describe the difference other than rattling chain noise.
The reason the gear drive oil pump modification was started is because a few mechanics who specialize in TDI have seen many worn oil pump chains/sprockets/tensioners. There will always be a few defective parts that come off the assembly line and all mechanical components like chains wear out sooner or later, but in my opinion, the failure rate is abnormal considering the number of Passat TDI sold versus the number of reported oil pump failures. This does not necessarily mean that every or even most Passat TDI will have this problem, just that the reported failure rate is high enough to consider this part a design failure. Nobody, not even VW-Audi knows the average time between failure for these parts and the percentage of cars that will have this problem, but they changed this design and if you want to not have this specific failure, the only sure way is to swap to the geared module.

Jeff this sounds more to me like a flat spot which is caused by a bad TPS throttle position sensor or tranny input/output sensor where the PCM looses counts and shuts the speed, and when you cycle the key it resets itself. Are there any codes?

Check the load reduction relay. I had this happen twice and repaired twice on my TDI mk IV. It throws no codes and almost has to be witnessed by a mechanic to be believed.

Where is my transmission oil located on my 2003 jetta vw 1.8t


My 2002 Jetta TDI had similar symptoms and research revealed that that model transmission (01M) is plainly and simply, a heap of **** . If you want to be done with it, you can have a used manual installed for about half what replacement with another POS would cost. If you are mechanically inclined, you can follow the procedure outlined on www.tdiclub.com to do it yourself, or if you are lucky, there is a "Guru" near you who can do it for you. (I wouldn't let a dealer touch it though!) I did the swap myself just about a month ago, and I LOVE driving my car again. No comparison between that old slush box and a manual with TDI torque.
