Question about 2011 Volkswagen Jetta
Had to be towed home. Let air filter dry out, moisture was in the air intake, no signes of water in oil, dried spark plugs, wires, distributor, car wont start. Lights and everything comes on when key is turned. Just makes a clicking sound when you try to start it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: oil around 1 spark plug well.
this could simply mean that too much oil has been added and overflowed on to the engine.if the vehicule runs well and is not noisy i would not worry about it. the spark plugs should be inspected to make sure they are seating properly.always start the threading of the plug to the head by hand.

From your brief desription I feel maybe the problem is located elsewhere, however to start helping with your request you could possibly purchase some intake cleaner, there are quite a few on the market that vary in cost. I have had fantastic results with (Hot Shot Power Boost) it is a tall aerosol can not too expensive and you spray it sensibly directly into to your intake manifold or down the throat of Carburated Engines whilst running on tickover.(Follow instructions fully)
Another way is to use additives in the fuel but this is time consuming and takes forever to achieve results, finally you could remove the whole intake system and clean it with solvents in a parts washer?
I feel the main reason possibly is Engine Breathing, when an engine wears the bores and piston rings allow gasses to pass into the crankcase therefore pressurising the engine slightly, this forces oil out of any weak area's and mainly from breather pipes such as into air intake.
Maybe a good engine oil flush and quality oil replacement with filter might help but in the long run you'll have to live with it.
If when warm you take the pipe from the engine to the Air filter off does is blow blueish vapour? if it does then you could filter it away from the intake to save clogging.
Hope this FixYa's problem?

My jetta did the same thing and i found out the hard way that my timing belt went out and i ended up messing up my crankshaft and had to replace it. Make sure to check that out before you continue to try and start it some more

Sounds like you have a bad glow plug relay that could cause a power spike and drain your battery,it could also take away power to the fuel pump causing the loss of power.Hope this helps you out some!!

SOURCE: 95 Jetta GLX VR6 Water Issue
i have the exact same problem going on. I just got this car the other week but have been losing my mind trying to figure this out.
mine is the vr6 as well. when i take the little resevoir hose off from the top it just blows steam no hot water while the car is running. but my other vr6 car pumps water not steam. i am trying to determine if it is the headgasket or the water pump. my exhaust is not white smoke, it does not have water in the oil, and does not have oil in the coolant.
if you have solved this, i would love to know email me email@example.com.
thanks so much!
