You're in the TDI (diesel) solutions section so it uses glow plugs.
If it's a petrol engine 2.0L then it would be accessible above and below intake manifold using a swivel spark plug deep socket.

My 97 VW Jetta GT will not go pass 65mph, I change the spark plug ,spark plug wires and oil change still nothing.


You could have a compression issue with one or more of the cylinders, meaning they aren't pumping out full power.

I'd recommend taking it to an engine tuning garage, and asking them to run a diagnostic on the ECU, and also mechanically check the engine to see that all cylinders are doing their job.

1998 vw jetta turns over but won't start check engine light on


The coil pack on these are bad about being defective. You need to check to see if you have power coming from your coil pack. If you do not try changing it out, this produces 60k +/- volts that goes through your ignition wires, to your spark plugs and ignites the gas on combustion with the piston. If it's not giving off a spark, thenyou're not getting power to fire off the engine.

You may have a bad coil pack - try moving two of them around and see if the misfire follows the coil pack or stays at the same cylinder. If it follows the coil pack, get a new one. If it stays in the same cylinder, inspect your spark plug wires and make sure the plug is gapped correctly.
