Question about 1999 Volkswagen New Jetta

1 Answer

Starting issues starts fine one time next time won't start

One time it will start next time it won't. it spins over but acts like it has no compression. I've changed the fuel shut off and the starter. Thought I had it fixed then it started doing it again. When it does start it runs fine no issues with it at all. Does not run rough or stall. Almost like it's not getting current to something but I'm not sure what.

    auditech13,

    thanks you very much for your input, but I've already tried all that you suggested, and still can not get it started now. changed fuel filter, fuel lines and cleaned egr valve, timing belt done about 10,000 miles ago. in process of doing a comprssion test to see if I have any stuck valves. as bad as the carbon was in the egr valve, thought maybe some busted loose and got stuck in a valve before I noticed it was had so much carbon in it. have not given up yet. :)

I would start by changing the fuel filter out on the top of the pass engine compartment.  If that doesn't change a thing next I would look at the EGR valve operation.  Sometimes it will stick and cause a no start.  Lastly check to see if you have any possible fuel leaks from injector pump and lines off pump.  The system could be bleeding down.

SOURCE: 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI WITH NO POWER

find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.

Starter works fine but won't crank engine. the pick up has to be given a push first before it starts


If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.

My 99 Taurus acts like the battery is dead it will crank the engine over a couple times slowly then nothing I've had the battery tested and it was good same with the starter it won't jump start...


If the battery and starter have proven good, then you probably have a connection issue.Check condition of battery, wire to battery, and starter wires and connections also. I dont know your particular situation, but there is always the possibility of a motor trying to sieze.

Try the idle air control valve it is located near the throttle body it has a four wire plug and has two small hoses attached to it this is a small stepper motor that controls the amount of air on start up this part will cost about $200 from a popular auto parts store.
