Run fault codes and check for faulty sensors . Check the condition of the cat converter as it may be blocking the exhaust.

SOURCE: my jetta sputters sometimes when im driving

I had a very similar problem with my 1999 jetta. Was it raining outside? Was your front grill wet or soaking? It is possible it is a crack in the ignition coil. The water would get into the ignition coil and cause the engine to 'jump' sputter out, die and the engine light wuold come on. Other than that, i don't know. I hope this may help you.

This is an Evaporative Emissions System code - indicates the computer has checked the system and concludes there is a leak in the system (small leak).. could simply be a loose fuel cap.

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.

SOURCE: 1999 Volkswagen Jetta overheating

If it was the water pump you should know very quickly. It would be very loose and woobly. It should be leeking out of the front of the block. Trying bringing it to a jiffy lube that does a high pressure antifreeze treatment. They will be able to free up any flow obsrtuctions or tell you if you need a new thermostat.

Can 94 jetta run on leaded or unleaded petrol


It is best to run this engine on unleaded petrol. A high grade unleaded will give you extra performance and cause no damage. Leaded fuel was designed for cars made in the 60's to 80's that had used softer materials in their cylinder heads, leaded fuel pro-longed cylinder head life and reduced pre-ignition. Unleaded fuels are a cleaner, safer fuel to use.

Surges in RPM while at idle


It may be one of two things. A intermittent problem with the idle air control sensor or the throttle position sensor. Have the cars computer scanned at a local auto parts store to see if there is a pending code that has yet to turn on the check engine light.

My 2003 jetta will back up only after rpm's increase


If your car has an automatic transaxle it is defective and needs to be rebuilt. Don't keep doing what you are doing or you will ruin some of the internal parts and that will cost you more money, it's also not good for the engine.

Why does my 91 VW Jetta stall out and lose power while driving?


I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.
