Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

My 2000 VW Jetta is not starting. I checked the plugs, and they are firing fine, but they are dry. It seems it's not getting fuel. I pulled the pressure regulator and turned on the key and it's definately not the fuel pump. Funny thing is, it was running a few weeks ago, then it would barely run. Then it was running fine, now it won't start after I changed the plugs. Sound's like electrical because of the "intermmitten" ness of it.

2001 VW Jetta GL TDI will not start. I checked the battery, and it is fine. Engine turns over when I turn the key, but it seems like no fuel is getting to the engine.


If you have blue/grey smoke coming out of the tailpipe, you are getting fuel, you can also check to see fuel if you pull back the braided cover on the fuel line (left front side of engine compartment). If you see smoke, check the glow plug relay (180) under the dash.

do you have compression on every cylinder? that may be your problem, that's the suggestion i'll make. pull each spark plug one at a time and do a compression check to make sure you have compression. if you don't have the tool, they are not that expensive to purchase. hope this helps you out!! although, if you do this test and it's good compression, i would lean more towards it could be out of time. meaning it could possibly have jumped time but you said the belt was good, it could have jumped a tooth or two which would mean a no start also.

My 2000 VW Jetta won't stay running


not the fuel relay. the pump may not have enough psi to pump properly. and you ould have a blocked fuel filter/ ethanpl das has been none to clog lines,fuel pumps, and emissions.and injectors. <p>
Change out your fuel filter first. Add a can of SEAFOAM to you fuel(parts stores). after changing filter. let SF sit in tank for 10-20 minutes in fuel. It will help dry the water that ethanol produces..,<p>
If it turns over faster, and wants to start, that is a sign of EGS(ethanol gas syndrome)/ let it sit another 20 minutes and try to start. If it won't fire through the injectors, replace the regulator(which is also damaged), and that should fix it. Also have a psi done on your fuel pump. good luck

1996 VW Jetta wont start


Check to see if it's getting gas or spray some starter fluid into intake. If it fires, change fuel filter first and try it without starter fluid. If it doesn't start then change fuel pump.
