Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
Now my starter gets extremely hot right after it is installed without starting my 97 vw jetta. What could cause my starter do that and what should I look to stop it
Check it ground wires. Could be loose causing it to arch and get hot

There should be six or seven allen wrench screws around the edge of the door panels. Loosening these releases the retaining clips inside. You will then want to remove the manual window crank if you have one by laying two fingers flat on the door panel and pushing the ring around the base of the crank sideways. You might have to rotate around this as it only pushes one way. Next you will have to remove the two large golden screws directly under the door panels handle. If you have rear door panel speakers you will have to politely pry off the speaker grill with a flat blade screwdriver and remove the speakers four screws and the wire clip from behind the speaker. You will also have to unscrew the door lock post. Then you should be able to lift the door panel up to release the top lip of it from the door.

there could be an air gap in you coolant circuit, make sure you have purged the entire cooling system of air that might have been be trapped in the cooling circuit when you changed the T-stat.

Hey..........I was having problems with my starter this summer as well I ended up putting 6 starters in. Every time you buy a starter for this car it should come with a new bushing.......the bushing is hard to get out but must be replaced. And yes you will need a bushing extractor tool which you should be able to rent from your car parts store and then return for a full refund when your done. If you have any more questions let me know. Like I said I have put six starters in my VW Jetta. I could do it with my eyes closed.

It is not wise to install a BOV on a 1.8t since it could cause problems with stalling in between shifts if it is vented to the atmosphere. The most recommended aftermarket solution is a new diverter valve (ex: Baileys, APR etc). If you still want to install the BOV they sell kits for the ssqv that mounts it to the charge pipe and routes the air back to the intake.
