Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have VW t5 1.9 tdi kombi with a AXB motor in it. I had one problem but now I have two. The speedo did not work and everybody told me that it was the ABS unit. Now recently it started having a second problem. When you start it it idles for about 2 seconds and then it dies. What can the problem be?

Speedo works off abs sensor not the module. have a reputable technician scan it for codes (abs codes and transmission codes) also may turn up a reason for it dying on you. If not I suggest a throttle body (if it's less than 10 years old) or an IAC (intake air control) valve. Let me know how you make out

duck tape on the air intake. I just fixed mine. There is a crack on the intake that lets too much air in when you put it in drive that makes the car stall. Try it it works.

You can go in to get the transmission codes read to find out what solenoid is bad or sensor might need to be replaced. There is a overdrive shift solenoid that goes out in some vehicles. Good luck

My 2006 vw jetta tdi lost power and died wont restart am told need code to restart but dont have right code

You will have to have the fault codes read by a code reading machine . That will tell you why the engine stopped. I am suggesting that you check to see if the cam shaft is turning when you try to start it as the timing belt may be broken. Repair/replace items listed by the codes -reset the CPU with the code reader

2004 vw jetta speedo does not work

The drive gear on the differential will commonly crack. You can check it by removing the sensor on the transmission and pushing the gear with a small screwdriver. If it moves, it needs to be replaced.
This is a fairly big job, the transmission does not need to be removed but the differential carrier does.
