Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

Fuel shut off valve

My 02 Jetta tdi was running fine, got home fine and the next day it won't start. Turns over, all sounds right but won't start. However, a few seconds into turning it over the low oil light flashes/beeps so I checked the oil. 3 quarts low. Nothing on the dip stick. I put oil in it. Upon on research I see that this could cause the fuel shut off valve to activate. If this is the case does anyone know how to reset it. Although I've read that this could be the problem, it hasn't said how to fix it.

SOURCE: Oil light flashing & beeping

This usually indicates that the oil pressure is low, but you need to get it checked out whether it's just a pressure sensor fault or connection issue, or it actually has got low oil pressure. The last one is the most concerning, because it could be causing internal damage if there is not enough oil pressure. Hopefully with a relatively late model car it will just be a sensor issue, but I would get it checked out ASAP, and preferably not use the car in the meantime.
Hope this helps, Mark.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level check 02 jetta tdi auto

VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

2003 Jetta TDI Turns but does not start


If it starts when pulled by other vehicle then Glow Plugs. othervise check the Ignition Key Contacts, might be worn out.

I neither of those then give me some more information. What exactly engine it is, maybe u know engine code.

when you checked the fuel line fuel flowed when u tried to start the engine while the fuel line was disconnected from intake? have you checked the injectors? are they spraying fine or there's no command.

03 jetta shut off while driving.


Check the load reduction relay. I had this happen twice and repaired twice on my TDI mk IV. It throws no codes and almost has to be witnessed by a mechanic to be believed.

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


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.

02 TDI Jetta auto tranny.....car loses power after 2 to 3 hr trip


Could need a tranny service. Be careful who you take it to. Special fluids and tools are required to do it. They could burn up the tranny if they do it wrong.
