Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

Would you happen to know??

Hi- I have a 2000 VW Jetta GLI.. The other night i was driving up in the mountains and a dog ran out in the middle of the road. As everyone knows Jetta's don't have much clearance from the road, and it did some damage to my car. Well now i believe my radiator if not both, the one for the air conditioner and the one for the engine, are cracked and need to be replaced. I would like to change it myself but i am not sure where to start.. i have never worked on a foreign car before and was just wondering if you had some useful advice. Thank you!!

    If your radiator and the ac condensor mounted in front of the radiator is cracked and need to replace them, you need to take it to a garage and have the ac system evacuated of all freon, and it's very easy to strip the threads on those aluminum pipes when their removed. Best bet, have a garage do it.

If your ac condenser is cracked it may have already lost the charge if thats the case you can replace the radiator and condenser and then have the ac recharged to r+r them you will need to remove the grill headlights&bumper cover then raise the car high enough to have room for them to come out the bottom so even if dont need to have help dealing with the freon it may be wise to have a shop do this job for you anyway. good luck with whatever you decide to do .slogrupp

How can I diagnose a fuel delivery problem on a 2003 VW Jetta GLI 2.8L


you can unhook the fuel line where it connects to the fuel rail and turn the key on and see if you get fuel but it's risky you don't want it to spill over the engine. you may just need a new filter or maybe an intermittent short at the fuel pump. could even just be the power supply plug for the fuel pump

I know this isn't a free solution but if you're into DIY repairs an official service manual will easily pay for itself. I had a 2000 Jetta until recently and used my manual dozens of times to validate the $50 expense.

Clutch replacement instructions for 1986 VW Jetta


The release bearing goes in the back of the transmission. You'll need to remove the round "VW" cap on the end of the transmission. I would need to see the pilot bushing to know for sure. It could be the starter bushing or the clutch pushrod bushing.

2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI WITH NO POWER


find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.
