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.

SOURCE: where is the fuel filter located on a 2003

If you vehicle is hesitating like it is not getting gas and then takes off like it just got gas then you might want to try replacing your air filter first, because is your air filter is dirty than you might not be getting the oxygen you need to run smooth, this will also give you better gas milage. If it is still doing this than you might want to replace the fuel filter it could also be dirty, you may be getting more than gas at the station. Unless you have the professional tools to remove and replace the filter, you might consider paying a VW place to do it for about $99 that is parts & labor. All auto mechanics are not the same.
Good Luck, mitchell in Houston

SOURCE: 1998 volkswagen jetta won't go into gear

Sounds like the clutch cable or spring has gone, but seeing as it went gradually probably the spring. It basically means that the clutch plate isn't lifting from against the big end, the grinding noise being the fact that you're forcing the car in to gear when the input shaft is still spinning. If you don't know how to take the gearbox off yourself then take it to a dealer, the way to get it to drive for now would have to be to start the car in first, or have someone bump it, the carefully work your way in to third by matching the gears before pushing the gearstick in. This is quite difficult and can do damage to your gearbox so be careful if you do this, otherwise get it towed.

SOURCE: my epc light went on in my 2002 volkswagen jetta

Take it to the dealer, the EPC warning light - and even more the failsafe run which doesn't allow you drive faster than 20mph) is an indication of serious motor troubles. They can read the ECU faultcodes, which should be a good startingpoint for troubleshooting the cause ...

You could do some basic troubleshooting like checking the air filter, the oil level, the spark plugs, etc. You didn't fill it up with bad gas, did you ? And does the engine make strange noises/vibration when running idle ? In case you fixed some obvious cause, you can dis- and reconnect the battery to erase the engine's faultcode. If it's not fixed, the EPC (and failsafe run) will simply come on again.

My advice would be not to drive it untill it's fixed to prevent more potential damage.

SOURCE: 1999 Volkswagen Jetta will not shift good

Volkswagens are known for having trouble with their transmissions, even more so in the 1st couple generations. This problem could just be your transmission sticking when getting into another gear. I recommend not pushing the car so your running at high RPMs, slowly work your way up that hill, and even try letting off the gas it may help it shift some. If you're really concerned with it you can take it somewhere to get the transmission checked, something maybe slipping or sticking it all depends and it can be a small inexpensive fix or it could be a heck of a lot, but its all up to you.
