I hate to inform you that changing the head does nothing to solve this issue. The knocking sound is coming from the the piston rods inside the block. It would be in your best interest to either drop a new engine in it. Unless you want to do a complete engine overhaul sir; I would advise against the latter.

SOURCE: '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...;-)

SOURCE: Stumbles on acceleration

Well, I would replace the air filter, make sure the air hose from the air filter to the intake is not kinked or blocked and check for vacuum leaks. If these are all fine, I would check the fuel pressure as it is possible the pump is weak and not supplying enough fuel.

If you have the 2.0L motor than NO. You have to remove the timing belt to access some of the water pump bolts.

I have a jetta 96 vw gas 2.0 L when it starts its missing speeds goes up and down


Just a long shot because I am only a novice with a project Jetta,but they do have a TPS (throttle position sensor) and if that is faulty,could be the cause.I think they are around $60 new for an aftermarket product.VW lists them for around $130 in Canada.Might want to check a salvage yard as you might be in for some trial and error as to the cause.

Starter motor


Hey..........I was having problems with my starter this summer as well I ended up putting 6 starters in. Every time you buy a starter for this car it should come with a new bushing.......the bushing is hard to get out but must be replaced. And yes you will need a bushing extractor tool which you should be able to rent from your car parts store and then return for a full refund when your done. If you have any more questions let me know. Like I said I have put six starters in my VW Jetta. I could do it with my eyes closed.
