Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I been having problems with sensors and the check engine light never came on to warn me of these sensors
The check engine light should come on along with the rest of the warning lights as a test when you turn the key switch on.
They should then go off once the engine starts.

Indicator may appear if there is a particular sensor fails.
Try resetting it using the following technique.
Sometimes the problem could be solved.
Advantage is you could use this technique in the future too.
If you can get an OBD 2 scanner off eBay (US$ 6), you could be able to communicate with your car ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using the smart-phone app.
So that, there is a chance to CLEAR all the error indications.
After that, still problem persists, it means the vehicle need full scan (you can't do this at home, probably seek a vehicle garage).

SOURCE: check engine light
one possible cause: many cars use the engine coolant temperature sensor to control idle speed and to shut down a dangerously overheated engine. if this sensor is sending a false signal, the controller will not know that and it will continue to listen to it. your task is to try and see if this signal is true or false. do this by measuring (USING A HAND-HELD MULTIMETER SET TO LOW OHMS RESISTANCE TEST) the resistance change across this sensor identified by a blue/white or yellow/red wire at one connector and a brown/green wire at the other connector. the sensor is located near the thermostat on the hot side of the coolant outlet from engine. if you find no change in ohms or find infinity ohms or always zero ohms, change the sensor and the light may fix itslef over time.

sorry , but no good news, if you are using a fair amount of oil it has most likely reclogged the converter. unbolt the pipe just before converter and run car, if it seems to run better then it is time for a set of rings and another new converter

A SIX INCH C-CLAMP, PURCHASED AT THE AUTO PARTS STORE, IS NEEDED TO PUSH THE PISTON INTO THE CALIPER AS LONG AS IT IS THE FRONT BRAKES THAT YOU ARE WORKING ON. IF YOU ARE REFERRING TO THE REAR BRAKES, THEN THE PISTON MUST BE TURNED COUNTERCLOCKWISE(TO THE LEFT). HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

It's located near the cam gear on the front of the engine however, the crank sensor, to the right of the oil filter near the bell housing is the part notorious for going out on these cars, and causing a p0322 and/or p0341 code, and sometimes others as well To replace the crank sensor you have to: Support the motor with a floor jack. Remove the starter, 2 of the starter bolts connect to the motor mount. Remove the motor mount from the frame, very easy. Remove the oil filter. That will give you just enough room to get an allen wrench in to remove the bolt holding the sensor in.
