SOURCE: 2006 vw jetta tdi service engine light reset

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

SOURCE: Power steering for my Bora/Jetta

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Power Steering Fluid Low Power Steering Fluid Level.
2 Inspect Power Steering Pump Worn out or Damaged Power Steering Pump.
3 Inspect Power Steering Hose Leaking or Incorrectly Installed Power Steering Hose.
4 Inspect Belt Tension Incorrect Belt Tension Will Allow Belts to Slip.
5 Inspect Belt Incorrectly Routed, Adjusted(Tensioned), Missing or Worn Drive Belt(s).
7 Inspect Ball Joint-upper Worn, Damaged, or Faulty Ball Joint.
8 Inspect Ball Joint-Lower Malfunctioning Ball Joint.

What happes when a vehicle experiences a loss of power steering, is that the car reverts to a
manual steering car (like in the Model T days), making steering difficult, especially at low speeds,
and during low speed maneuvering.

Which other vw engine can fit in my jetta v5 agz


you can fit anything with a cutting torch and welding gear,,, if you are in europe you can only fit a new engine of the original type that conforms to the norms on the certificate of homoglonation ,if its for road use . just noticed jetta ,this is the american version as jettas in europe are well old now so yes you could put in a engine from any of the VW range which is similar too yours ,say a golf or a seat /skoda

Jetta 4 2.3 v5 heater does not work,only blows cold air


Hi, if the temperature gauge read zero then the thermostat is gone.
If it's just no heat and the gauge on the dash is reading normal coolant temperature then it may be the Coolant Temperature Sensor. If the heater core was gone there should be a leak inside the car somewhere. Hope this helps

My 2000 Jetta TDI blows cold air while driving. No fun this winter! I would expect a bad thermostat; but I understand if the thermostat is bad a warning light would be lit on the dash. Is that the case?


No, this is not your case. If the thermostat is bad any warning light would be lit on the dash.
First time you might check the thermostat operating.
Heed of antifreeze coolant temperature!!!

The thermostat location for 2000 VW Jetta 1.9 TDI, is on back of the alternator at the bottom side of the bracket.
IMPORTANT: It is NOT necessary to replace the alternator if you want to change the thermostat !!!
Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.
4. If the hose is already warm the thermostat is out of order.

Thermostat location, Part number: 044121113, in german - "Kuehlregle" (Price around $25):

Important note: Always replace the thermostat round seal, position 7 in the above picture.

Engine problem.


Hi Michael,

The motor shut off and the engine light came on, you won’t start right away and you wait a couple of days and start it again, sounds like your engine was over heated and because it is too hot and the engine frozen.

There are several kinds of engines, water cooling ,oil cooling and air cooling.

Over heated can cause many different problems for the cars, you should check step by step yourself.

Water cooling engine; if you know, you can help somebody.


1. Check the radiator see if you have enough coolant
2. Check the oil see if you have enough oil
3. check the water pump see if the water pump works fine
4. check the thermostat see it is function right.


Suppose your radiator has water or coolant, leave your radiator cap open, start your engine, let it is running 10 to 15 minutes and wait it is getting hot and see the water in your radiator, if the water moves, that means your cooling system works fine, otherwise either the thermostat frozen or the water pump was broken.

You mentioned when you re-start your car, sounds like a diesel engine, please check the where the noise from, if the noise from the water pump area, that means you need to change the water pump. When you change the water pump, change the thermostat at the same time, because when the engine over heated, the thermostat maybe damaged.

Oil cooling engine, check the oil pump. If the noise from the oil pump, you need change it.


Good luck,

Frank
