Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
My engine light has been on since last November. I have taken it into the shop three times, each time they replace something (coolant the first time, ECT sensor the second and third time) but the light will only stay off for a day or so. I bought an engine tester and found out it is coding that my engine is running cold. The only performance issue I have experience since this has happened is on cold days (Texas cold, in the 30’s) It will not start right away. I have to start is a second time to get it to stay on. What can I do to fix this and is it damaging my car?
30 is not a low enough temp to worry about too much, but I had similar problem with two sensors, finally got the third one installed and it worked fine try getting the sensor from a different part of the country, I am sure they make them batches that do go bad and us consumers are the testers for their low quality controls, good luck Fareed
