Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I have changed the diesel filter on my car and is still vibrating. At some stage when I turnedthe engine on it will need me to let it heat atleast for 15 minutes to stop vibrating but now it's doing that all the time and it doesn't have power and it's not turbo as it sometimes, when you've driven it for about 2 to +-5 kilomiters and switch off and on the engine it stop vibrating sometimes, what could be the problem?
Did it do this before you changed the filter ?
If no, suspect you have an air lock in the fuel injection system.
Simplest way for you to eliminate it, is to undo each of the 4 injector feed pipe nuts, half a turn, whilst the engine is running, at approx 1OOO RPM, the air will be forced out along with a squirt of diesel, and you should be back to normal.
Good Luck !
Let me know how you get on.
