Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Dead miss on #1 cyl

'03 jetta 1.9 TDI had all symptoms of bad injector on #1. Replaced injector, no improvement. Good fuel pressure at all points. Still a dead miss on #1 cyl. After driving for some distance noticed rise in oil level prob due to diesel going into crankcase. Any ideas?

Miss fires at ideal smells like to much fuel out of exhaust. Runs better at higher rpm. 2000 Pontiac Grand am 2.4L

If it improves with rpm, I would suspect a stuck injector (not closing) causing your engine to run rich, or a bad temperature sending unit. You should check for fault codes (they will do this for free at Autozone). You will most likely have a code for a bad oxygen sensor. Don't replace it until you correct the rich fuel mixture with the bad one unplugged. The rich mixture is the cause of the bad O2 sensor, not the symptom.
I you unplug the O2 sensor the ecm will substitute a generic value, allowing you to correct the real issue without destroying another O2 sensor. They are not cheap.
You can verify a stuck injector cyl by cyl by inspecting the plugs. If they all look the same, you may want to unplug the cold start injector and see how it runs.

I have 104000 on my dodge 2004 stratus I take good care and its been good to me. Its missing I got a mis fire in # 1cyclender code . Relaced the coil plugs and wires. Ran good for a few days now its back...

You need to get a fuel pressure test on your fuel manifold. Since you've done the electric parts it's time to check for weak gas pressure. It can give you a miss-fire at one or more cylinders. The test is fairly simple but can eliminate a whole system early in the process. Next after this is a compression check which is more difficult and involved.

I'd replace the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure.

Car won't start consistently.

Try turning on the key and counting to ten. If the engine starts, your fuel system is either syphoning back into the tank and/or your injectors a leaking down. Have your fuel filter changed and the fuel pressure regulater tested for output pressure setting. If your injectors are bleeding down the fuel can go into the cylinders(flooding) or permit the fuel to drain back. Tjis is a must fix issue because gas will dilute the oil causing serious damage to bearings. Good Luck, Ned.

Dead cylinders 2003 sebring

it sounds like you may have the wires on the wrong coil. It should be #1 on the #4 coil, and the #3 wire on the #2 coil. you probably have them backwards so 1 and 3 are firing on the exhaust stroke.
the firing order is 1-3-4-2.
they should be hooked like this.

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.
