Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
My 2003 Jetta has now shut off at the same location 3 times. After taking my daughter to school, my car shuts off and it has done it 3 times. I know this sounds crazy but there is some major repair work on the sewer system in front of her school. Is it possible the O2 sensor is acting up with the gas in the air? I have driven there a hundred times with no problems ... the sewer repairs start and my car stalls and shuts off. If I sit there a few minutes it will eventually start. The EPC light comes on. Any suggestions?
The EPC ( Electronic Power Control) light comes on because there is an problem with the engine. I would take it to your local dealer or part store and have them hook a scan tool up to it and read the codes. This will give you a code or codes that identify what is wrong with your engine. The part store does not charge for this service, the dealer does. If you have a mechanic that you trust, I would take it to them. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter
It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

If the mass flow sensor was bad, the check engine light should of came on giving off an engine code. To remove the mass flow, disconnect battery neg cable, then pull of the wire harness and pull out mass. You will probably have to remove the air intake hose.

If it was the mass air flow sensor, you will have a check engine light. The small rubber hoses connected to/from the mass air flow connector might have come loose or have a crack, which will cause compression to be too low. Check there before replacing the maf sensor.

no it wont. in order for the air bag light to go off you must get a VW air bag resetter. they sell for about 45 bucks. it will reset the light and crash data. since your airbag light is on the airbags are locked up. once reset they will work again. anymore questions give me an email... firstname.lastname@example.org
